Proven Manufacturing Change Agent
I am in search of a Manufacturing Operations Management position.
I am a facts-and-data driven change-agent and have successfully demonstrated the skills required to turn around unprofitable operations beset with ongoing safety, quality, service and cost issues. In previous roles my management style has been validated as 9 Direct Reports have been promoted into Plant Manager positions and 14 others into position need at other Company sites including Corporate Headquarters. I continually challenge the status-quo, embracing what works well and am quick to correct systems, equipment and personnel that "Don't Seem to Make Sense".
Worked 5.47M hours without a Lost Time Accident and achieved a 3 year Recordable Incident Rate of 0.20 during my three year tenure earning 2 coveted Global Safety Awards and 1 North American Safety Award. My site was designated a Manufacturing Center of Excellence.
I successfully facilitated 4 year, strike free Collective Bargaining Agreements. One limiting increases to $500 cash/1%/1.5% and 2.5% over four years, the other no wage increases over 4 years but with the addition of a throughput incentive bonus for all on site - a contested issue in years past.
Introduced lean methodologies in a steel stamping operation (Change over procedures, metrics, die storage/retrieval and repair, preventive maintenance schedules) and eliminated a major throughput constraint that impacted 10 major product lines serving sold out markets..
