To excel in this role you'll need high energy along with a strong sense of ownership and accountability. Strategic thinking and vision will be essential, but just as important will be your ability to take charge and make things happen. At the same time, a bull-in-the-china-shop approach won't work here. You'll need to influence and motivate people to buy in on your ideas by showing them why it's the right thing to do.

If you're the person we're looking for, you are proactive about moving the needle. You should see the value in establishing solid relationships with the managers of other departments, preventing "silos" and supporting smooth, seamless flow through the entire facility.

  • Take a proactive approach to getting up to speed quickly with our industry, market and operations.
  • Combine analytical thinking with creativity when solving problems.
  • Set clear expectations and hold people responsible, while also promoting an upbeat atmosphere.
