INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE – After serving in the military, my first industry role was a 3rd shift supervisor in a manufacturing facility. No other role could have prepared me better to make a transition to Human Resources than front line leadership on the shop floor! After plant HR leadership roles, I had the opportunity to support multiple sales and marketing functions where I learned the importance of how HR supports the customer facing side of the business. My background also includes HRBP role for a Global Division with full P&L across all functions – Sales, Marketing, Manufacturing, Sourcing, Finance, and Engineering. Coming full circle to my manufacturing foundation, I most recently held the position of Vice President for Global Operations in a Fortune 200 company spanning across 49 manufacturing sites, 30 DC’s, the global supply chain functions and over 25,000 employees.
I do believe that “Your experiences are far more compelling than what you learn second hand.”
