"Every day, live with Passion!"
With Gerresheimer since: 1987
After graduating with my degree in 1987, the job market was open with many opportunities. I chose the glass industry, specifically the glass industry manufacturing health care containers. I first started my career at the Warsaw, Indiana manufacturing site. I chose this industry because I felt it I could begin a career in a business that would be consistent and be around for my entire working career, I was right. I soon found out that if you have passion for what you do, more and more opportunities will open up. During my career with Gerresheimer, I started out as an Electrical Engineer, Maintenance Supervisor, Plant Engineer, Manufacturing Manager and now a Plant Manager at the Morganton Plant. Every day I look forward to being a part of this company because I know there is support from all levels of the Gerresheimer Team.
I look forward to attending the annual Gerresheimer Management System (GMS) conferences, it gives me the opportunity to step away from my daily responsibilities and take the time to meet the other Gerresheimer employees from around the world. I have the opportunity to participate in the Vision Mission Values (VMV) Training with the top 100 Managers in Gerresheimer and then play a major role in driving the VMV of Gerresheimer to the working areas.
My plans for the future in Gerresheimer are to continue living my life with Passion every day. Living this way gives me the confidence that I will continue to be a part of this company and continue to grow as a person, a leader and a friend to my colleagues in Gerresheimer.
