MHI has announced that Hytrol’s Chris Glenn, Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering, is the winner of the 2016 YPN Mentor Award. This award is given to one MHI member who instills and nurtures talent, advocates for employees, is a positive and inspiring role model, and offers professional guidance. Glenn received the award at the MODEX Industry Night April 6.
A committee selected Glenn for the award based on his abilities as a professional guide and role model, and his commitment to his company and industry.
His accomplishments in the industry over his 22-year employment span range from right-sizing the workforce to restoring delivery times to over 98 percent, but his participation as a mentor was a main component for his selection. Professionally, Glenn is affiliated with the STEM Advisory Board for Jonesboro High School, a Northeast Arkansas Career and Technical Center Board Member, a Tek Starz mentor, the Program Chair for the local ASQ chapter, a participant in “Partners of Education,” and graduate of the Leadership Jonesboro program.
Hytrol employees praised Glenn for his professionalism and industry knowledge.
“Chris has affected this industry and a great many lives in it very positively in his career,” said Bob West, Hytrol Vice President of Corporate Development. “There are many technically experienced individuals in this industry; I don’t know of any who have the same level of professionalism, the willingness to help, and the congeniality that Chris carries throughout each day.”
The MHI Young Professionals Network provides resources to those who are looking to advance their careers in material handling and the supply chain. The network hosts several events and awards throughout the year. Hytrol’s Brandy Lloyd was a finalist for the YPN Outstanding Young Professional award.
