McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders Managing Director Mark McConnell and Talent Acquisition + Operations Associate Lauren Ayala have successfully placed an interim Vice President of Operations for an aerospace company on the East Coast. 

The company was looking to turn around one of their business units focused on manufacturing products for the aerospace and defense industry. This required a hands-on operations leader who could quickly identify production bottlenecks and capitalize on opportunities to improve plant production. The company was also under a tight time frame to improve production and secure new contracts from significant customers.

The placed candidate brought 25 years of hands-on leadership experience in manufacturing, process improvement, and P+L management, showcasing a great balance of manufacturing production aptitude and business acumen.
