Job Description
CONFIDENTIAL OPENING!!! AND EXCLUSIVE!!!  VP called me this morning. 

Looking for 10-15 years of plant wide leadership. Union experience, budgets, and be able to be part of a multi-plant leadership team. MUST have an engineering degree with a Chemical Engineering degree a HUGE plus. Need to have run plants in excess of 150 employees. Chemical operations experience also a must!  Need to have experience with six sigma, and a background in cGMP manufacturing is a huge plus! 

Keys to this role......

Must have an engineering degree and at least 10 years of leadership ability. This leadership needs to be over an entire plant operation. Area of Experience: Complex chemical manufacturing, blending and packaging is a must! Can come out of liquid pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals or biocide manufacturing.

Keys to the position:

1) cGMP is highly desired. Coming out of Liquid Pharmaceuticals or regulated Consumer products chemicals.

2) Mobility is a plus, looking for someone who potentially has held multiple positions of growth, different locations but the same company. This is needed as promotions to senior company positions will most likely happen down the road. Looking for future VP's or multi-plant leadership.

3) Consumer Products chemicals and less industrial chemicals. Can possibly come out of a highly regulated liquid food manufacturer. 

4) ChE degree a HUGE plus but if all of the above is met, an ME degree "may" work.
