Class: ‘89 (BS)
Comments: Upon graduation, I accepted a job with Freudenberg-NOK (a tier I automotive supplier) in GA. I met my husband there. We were then transferred to the corporate headquarters in MI. I then worked for Chrysler Corp. After returning to GA in 1996, I went to work for GA Tech. I have spent most of my career consulting on Mfg. Systems Improvements. After the first of the year I will be joining McKinsey & Company as a Mfg. Specialist based out of Atlanta.
The complete, untold story of McKinsey & Co.'s founding father
This is the authoritative and insightful account of Marvin Bower, who helped found McKinsey & Co. in 1939 and served as managing director of the firm from 1950 to 1967, and of how Bower, an attorney, took a concept known as industrial engineering and transformed it into what we now know as management consulting. As Dick Cavanagh, now CEO of the Conference Board, said, Bower "didn't just preach values, he practiced them. . . . He was a teacher as well as a leader."
