Mary is co-founder of the Emc Network. Before starting Emc, Mary spent 30 years at General Motors where she was a manager responsible for industrial engineering operations, as well as implementing lean manufacturing systems in powertrain plants, for current model operations and new model programs. During Mary’s last four years at GM she was able to leverage her unique combination of hands-on plant floor experience, lean expertise and deep knowledge of information management to create global training websites for Manufacturing Engineering and Manufacturing personnel. These websites incorporated unique taxonomies, federated search terms, job-specific curriculums and a governance oversight process, allowing employees to easily find credible learning materials to enhance their current position knowledge, as well as explore alternative career requirements.
Mary holds an Engineering Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University, and Master’s degrees in Engineering and Information Science from The University of Michigan. She has developed and taught management training classes in Lean Manufacturing.
