Div. Director of Quality- CT or PA

This highly aggressive, $675MM publicly-held manufacturer of highly engineered industrial and aerospace components has created a new Director of Quality Assurance position to bring one of their industrial divisions into line. Corporate sales have been consistently growing at a clip of 11% per year for the past five years. Their stock price has doubled in the past 5 years. They have a goal of making an acquisition a year, and they have been keeping on track with this. In 2007, they had 16 manufacturing facilities in 3 countries. Today they have 36 manufacturing facilities in 6 countries. Their customers include a long list of Fortune 50 industrial and aerospace corporations. The new position offers visibility–you will report to the Division Vice President, but ultimately also to the corporate COO. Your staff will include two Quality Managers and one Quality Engineer/Supervisor in 3 plants with 265 employees in total. The first goal will be to reduce the field service return rate.  Reporting to these senior corporate managers on a monthly basis, you will be developing new systems and quality metrics, exploring new technologies, reducing cost of quality, developing and executing time-phased and quantifiable annual quality improvement plans, conducting internal and vendor quality audits, and more.  You will have the authority to stop production at any facility in order to resolve any issue reported by customers. Travel is expected to be about 30% of the time. Salary ranges from $130,000 to $155,000, and there is a 15% bonus. Benefits include Aetna Choice POS II Medical, Met Life Dental, vision care, tuition aid, and 401 (k). Relocation expenses are available.
