MHI recently interviewed Hytrol’s Chris Glenn, Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering, who won the 2016 MHI YPN Mentor Award. This award was given to Glenn as someone 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 in April 2016.
Glenn spoke about his involvement in Leadership Jonesboro, the high school STEM program and mentoring young professionals at Hytrol. The best he would give to a young professional starting a career in supply chain and material handling is to “be eager to learn from those leaders and mentors in the company. Still be a great thinker, but listen to those that can help you. It will make all the difference later in your career, and will help you move further than you would be able to otherwise.”
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.
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.
