FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARLINGTON, Vt. (June 10, 2014) – Bryan Campbell, Mack North headquarters plant manager, has been named successor to Ray Burns as president of Mack Molding, Southern Division, effective September 1, 2014, it was announced today by Jeff Somple, president, Mack Molding, Northern Division.
“Bryan brings a combination of sales and operational experience to his new role, not to mention boundless energy,” says Somple. “He is as comfortable in the conference room with customers as he is in the molding room with technicians. Bryan has gained valuable experience while working in a sales/engineering capacity and, later, heading up our largest and most complex manufacturing facility in Vermont. Additionally, he brings an automotive background to the table, which is critical in terms of large‐part molding, Class A painting, and the markets served by our southern plants.”
Campbell joined Mack in 2008 as a program manager, where he gained front line experience with medical OEMs. Just one year later, he took that experience to the operations side to manage the Headquarters Plant, which focuses on complex contract manufacturing, including medical devices. In that role, he supervised the molding, sheet‐metal, machining and contract manufacturing operations, and had P&L responsibility for that plant.
Before joining Mack, Campbell was operations manager for Guardian Automotive, Warren, Mich., a Tier 1 automotive supplier. He had responsibility for multiple plants, including New Bern, N.C. During his eight‐year stint there, he also served as quality assurance manager and quality engineer.
Campbell holds a bachelor’s in business administration from Catawba College, Salisbury, N.C., and has also completed lean manufacturing modules by Toyota Production System Training and the University of Kentucky.
Campbell will begin working this month with Ray Burns, current president at Mack’s Southern Division, until Burns retires later this year. He will be joined in Inman, S.C., by his wife, Dina, and children Kerri, 13, and Andrew, 11. “Bryan is an avid golfer and skier – one passion will be well‐served, while one will suffer,” quips Somple.
