Supply Chain Manager

Fiberguide Industries

I have an undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering from Colorado State University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.  I have experience in every aspect of the supply chain.  My background is in Industrial Engineering with experience in a manufacturing environment; including project management, plant floor layout and optimization, continuous improvement, and lean manufacturing.  I began my career working for Agilent Technologies as a Sustaining Engineer working with plant floor layout and optimization in a low mix high volume manufacturing environment.  From there I worked for Schlage Lock as a Test Lab Engineer responsible for writing test plans of commercial and residential locks.  I then moved into a role as a product data specialist with Case Logic where I was responsible for creating item numbers, bill of materials, and assigning UPC codes.  I was then promoted into a replenishment analyst position where I spent two years diving into the supply chain.  After that I worked for the Gates Corporation as a demand analyst/master planner.  I spent almost five years in this role working with planning, scheduling, inventory management, as well as Sales and Operations Planning.  Currently I am the Supply Chain Manager for Fiberguide Industries.  It began January 2013 and I oversee planning, purchasing, incoming receiving, and inventory for both the Idaho and New Jersey facilities.
