Please, explain your passions and values 

I am passionate about process, execution and results.  As a Chemical Engineer, I have always appreciated process.  In my career in both Operations and Human Resources, I have realized it is essential for sustained and reliable results.  My chief value is people.  I am in manufacturing because of the people I have been fortunate enough to meet.  I have so much respect for hardworking, passionate people.  Whether from the person sweeping the floor, to the CEO, people who are hardworking and passionate inspire me.  Capturing the Heart and Minds of all of our employees to make Bonnell Aluminum the best Aluminum Extruding Company in the world, is my goal. 

What about Bonnell Aluminum makes it a great place to work? 

The people and the culture.  I have yet to hear, “that’s not how we do it here”, or “that won’t work here”.  The culture is a “can do” attitude and “let’s give it a try”.  That is the special sauce of Bonnell.  (Shhh, don’t tell anyone) 

Personal interests (hobbies, talents, etc.)

I “play” golf from time to time. I like to work around the house and have 6 four legged “Kids”.  Work is also a hobby to me.
