October 23rd Plastics News featured its second Women Breaking The Mold conference. In July of 2017 Engineered Profiles had four associates profiled by Plastics News during its continuing coverage of women in the Plastics Industry. At the Women Breaking The Mold conference held in Chicago Engineered Profiles was fortunate to have Materials Manager Stacey Chatman appear on a special panel for women in leadership positions.
Stacey is the first female manager of African-American descent in the company’s history. She currently leads a team of 25 people who move raw materials and finished goods in the plant, as well as overseeing the internal recycled materials program and managing the blending department. Stacey was joined by Cathy Browne, General Manager at Crowne Poly, as well as Rae Howard the Global Resin Commodity Manager for General Motors. The panel was a wide ranging discussion of leadership as well as an evolving work-space environment. Everyone at Engineered Profiles congratulates Stacey on her excellent appearance on the panel as she and the other women at Engineered Profiles continue to Break The Mold.
