Manager of Operations
The PBE Group
Mary has worked for over 34 years in manufacturing, has performed many roles from entry level operator to manager, always has a positive attitude, is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, displays excellent leadership skills, and is said to show a drive for perfection in all that she does.
Her nominator, Christa Glassburn, stated, “She is a shining example of what is the American dream. She began working at PBE after high school and worked her way up. She has learned everything she knows from her own hard work and dedication to continuous learning. She is always the first to offer to try something new or to take responsibility for something that she doesn’t know how to do. She is a tough but fair and supportive supervisor and a very loyal employee. She always takes the responsibility for any errors made by her team and does her best to solve them in a way which enables the team to learn from their mistakes while not zeroing in on any individual in a public setting. When employees require discipline, she is discreet and professional and believes in giving employees every chance to improve themselves. For all of these reasons and a million more, I truly believe that she serves as an example of what a woman in manufacturing should strive to be.”
