- Plant Manager
- New Breed Logistics · 2007 to present · Bolingbrook, Illinois
- As a Plant Manager I developed a reputation for turning around distressed operations and creating a positive work environment. I did this through assessing current personnel, identifying deficiencies and then developing a team to implement Lean concepts. Consistently delivering superior safety, efficiency and financial metrics. One example of a Lean concept that I applied during my tenure; converted 3 indirect FTE into direct positions from inbound production area. Product flow was congested in the container repair/ welding department, which resulted in the slowing of production throughout the processing department. I increased WIP staging area by 4000 square feet and redesigned processing department unprocessed product staging area in Inbound, to increase product flow, which eliminated EE downtime resulting in an overall 28% increase in plant efficiencies.
