Operations Leadership & Manufacturing Engineering “All-Stars” #38551, #61075

“I knew that if I failed, I wouldn’t regret that.  But I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.”  Jeff Bezos

If Bezos didn’t try to launch Amazon.com in 1995, he wouldn’t have been named the world’s wealthiest individual by Forbes in 2021.  M-Works Search Engineering “All-Stars” try as well.  Many times they fail but without doing so they wouldn’t succeed in coming up with a solution to a difficult problem or challenge.

This week, I’m highlighting two “All-Stars.”  Our first is an operations leadership “All-Star” who has extensive plant and multi-site manufacturing experience within injection molding and plastic extrusion settings.  In previous roles, he’s grown EBITDA while reducing costs and increasing safety, productivity, and quality. 

Our second engineer is a manufacturing engineering “All-Star” who has broad based experience within metal fabrication and machining environments.  He’s built upon his engineering skillset to launch new items to production by doing tooling and fixturing design, BOM documentation, CNC programming as well as ongoing process improvement and equipment troubleshooting.

Both of our “All-Stars” are now trying to identify new manufacturing career opportunities where they can build up their experience and skills.  They don’t want to regret failing by not trying to help new manufacturing organizations find new solutions to their operations and manufacturing engineering challenges.  

Could your manufacturing organization benefit from new or additional operations management  or manufacturing engineering expertise?  If so, please call 312.226.4916 or email to discuss how these “All-Stars” could impact your team.  

Best Regards,
