IRVINE, California, January 5, 2017 – MB Interim Leaders (MBIL) announced the successful appointment of the interim Vice President of Operations at a private equity-backed industrial manufacturing company.

This interim executive leader search was conducted by Rebecca Miller, MBIL’s Vice President of Sales, who met with the company’s HR department regarding their need for an Operations leader.  Due to the prior incumbent vacating the seat, the business had an urgent need for an Operations Executive with previous experience leading and overseeing industrial manufacturing, supply chain, freight, and logistics.  Within a few weeks, the interim leader completed the interview process and was placed onsite.  While onsite, he was responsible for overseeing all manufacturing operations and successfully achieved the mission critical objectives, including optimizing the usage of the company’s ERP system for cost reduction and inventory control.

The interim Vice President of Operations has extensive experience as an operations executive at leading manufacturing companies, including Texas Instruments, Dell, and Solectron Global Services.  He has a strong background in leading operations, supply chain, freight, and logistics teams and is highly specialized in turnaround situations.
