The leader of the quality function at a global manufacturer accepted another opportunity, leaving the plant with a critical need for an experienced quality professional with automotive and defense industry experience who could assume the role by the following week.
Patina provided a hands-on manufacturing operations professional with more than 25 years of experience, who had led the quality area for other organizations in the same industries, to perform as the Interim Quality Manager. This allowed the company to keep operations on track while it searched for a permanent Quality Manager.
The Patina Professional provided day-to-day leadership of the plant’s quality function and was able to acclimate to the role quickly, applying his Lean Six Sigma problem solving skills and resolving a number of issues. Once a permanent Quality Manager was hired, our professional helped transition the activities to the employee.
