I have been with the company since 2003, starting as the Assistant Production Supervisor, then moving into the Production Supervisor's position. It has been a great experience to grow with the company and work with all of the departments as one team truly working toward one goal – customer satisfaction.

I reside just outside Mansfield, and have lived in this area all my life. I am a graduate of Ohio Northern University with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I love to design and develop solutions for our customers. The work is very rewarding and the atmosphere is that of a large family – one of the perks of working at a family-owned company. I have been with the company since 2002, and have been Engineering Manager since 2006. In my spare time I enjoy my family, sports, church and water-related activities. I have a beautiful wife and six kids to keep me young and my day planner full.

My brother Steve and I founded Mansfield Assemblies Co. in 1987. I became President of Mansfield Industries in 2004 and today lead Mansfield Engineered Components with an external focus on marketing and growth and an internal focus upon finance and administration. I am a graduate of Kenyon College and The Lawrenceville School. My wife Geneva and I have lived most of our lives in Mansfield and serve on several local nonprofit boards and foundations. We have two children with whom we enjoy traveling, skiing and nearly all things water. I have a keen interest in maps and the weather.

I'm a lifelong Mansfield resident and have been with the company since 1987, serving a variety of roles in Operations, Quality and Engineering. I’ve enjoyed watching our company grow and have fond memories as a child of coming to work with my father on Saturdays. I’ve been around just long enough to be amazed and amused by the passing trends and fads that come in and out of the business world. From my grandfather on down through my father, and brother and I – we’ve found that by truly listening to our customers, sticking to basics and treating people the way that we would like to be treated, a business can flourish and grow. I am a graduate of Kenyon College and live in rural Mansfield with my wife and four children, and a menagerie of animals.

I was born and raised in Mansfield, graduated from the University of Toledo in 2015, and have been blessed with the opportunity to lead the Quality team. As a whole I have found the time here has been such an awesome opportunity for growth in all areas of my life. I love spending time with my friends and family, whether it be at a computer screen or out in the wild or anywhere in between. A few hobbies of mine include dancing, drawing, painting, slacklining, reading, and gaming.

Even though I just joined the company in 2012, I feel blessed to be a part of a great team. I started my working career on the manufacturing side of the appliance industry. I enlisted in the USAF for training in electronics and from there to purchasing civil engineering materials, deli supplies, electronic components, steel and automotive components plus inventory management experiences all around the US and have come full circle to supplying the appliance industry back home. I was born and raised in Galion, Ohio. My husband and I live on a small farm in Morrow co. We have 3 adult children and 3 grandsons. When I’m not working, we are building our home, riding motorcycles, evangelizing or just watching the ducks swim around on the pond. I have organized and coordinate a group, Support Galion Troops, to send care packages every month to deployed service members from the Galion, Northmor, Colonel Crawford and Crestline area. I belong to MOMS (Mothers of Military Servicemen) and AMVETS.

I am a lifelong resident of the Mansfield area, and have been with the company since 2006 as a Project Engineer. I graduated with honors at Miami University (Ohio), with a bachelor’s degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering. I previously had six years of experience designing heavy road machinery. I enjoy the unique daily challenges of designing solutions that are not only cost effective, but are robust and user-friendly. Working for a family-owned and operated company has been a true blessing, and I am continually thankful to be part of the Mansfield family. I live in the rural outskirts of Mansfield with my beautiful wife, spending much of our free time tweaking our house to turn it into a home. I enjoy woodworking, reading, and serving others in the community through church outreach programs.
