Profile Activity

I have over 10 years experience in managing people and processes. I’m trained to green belt level in lean six sigma, and I also have a diploma in management studies. I’m an effective change agent, and have implemented numerous improvement processes in my time as a production manager. I have led and been part of many teams which improved processes and achieved financial gain using (lean & six sigma) techniques. I’m very focused on customer care both internal and external , and ensuring the team are fully trained and are flexible to adapt to changes in the business. I’m also very focused on TPM, and implementation of lean into all processes to improve output and reduce waste, and the productivity of the area under my control. I value the importance of effective networking and ensuring the building of good relationships with departments which have a direct impact on my own, this allows for improved outputs, better material supply, agreed planning and target setting, and effective escalation process. My last position was as a OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) engineer with Vistakon (Johnson &Johnson) in Limerick, focusing on project work to improve line inefficiencies on contact lens manufacturing, prior to this I was a packaging manager (contract) with Millmount Healthcare , and was responsible for a team of 50, operating in 5 clean rooms and 6 packaging halls using Uhlmann and Noack lines. In my previous position as a production manager with Arvato Digital Services I was responsible for a team of 85 staff over 5 areas manufacturing CD’s and DVD’s using injection moulding and printing machines (high volume) to service blue chip customers The operation was very high tech and my reports included shift managers, lead technicians/technicians, and operational staff.
