Stone Brewing

Sr. Manager Supply Chain

Some may question the move, some may call it ambitious, and some may be excited to see what happens, but I decided to change industries hoping for the chance to learn new skills and gain experiences that would broaden my knowledge across multiple sectors. What I've experienced is that as vast as supply chain careers are, different industries can learn from each other to help both top and bottom line results. As an example, the quality aspects you learn within the medical device industry play very well in the beverage industry as compliance standards are increased, while focus on inventory costs and turns in the beverage industry would play very well in the medical device industry as margins continue to decrease. I've been fortunate to carry a unique skill set in all aspects of supply chain and supplier quality in two very different but similar industries, and looking forward to continue to leverage those experiences while building strong teams that can grow and deliver significant results.
