Manager of Metallurgy- Southern New England

A highly aggressive, $675MM publicly held manufacturer of highly engineered industrial and aerospace components seeks a Manager of Metallurgy with ferrous background to head up their corporate department. 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. This rapid growth brings plenty of opportunities—in fact, this Corporate Metallurgy Manager position is newly created. Their customers include a long list of Fortune 50 industrial and aerospace corporations.  The department is located in a new building. The metallurgy lab has new instruments and a brand new R & D furnace.  Corporate management here comes from engineering and as a result, stresses technical achievement.  In order to keep the atmosphere pragmatic and sensible, they tend to hire technical people with unpretentious personalities.  Reporting to a Manager of Product Development, you will have 3 reports, 2 Senior Metallurgists and a Technician. The duties are varied.  In addition to R & D, you will be consulting with all divisions, assisting in failure evaluations, helping to attain and keep NADCAP accreditation, working directly with internal and external customers, evaluating service vendors, conducting bi-weekly staff meetings, and more.  Travel is estimated to be about 20% of the time.  Salary target ranges $125,000 to $135,000, and I will submit qualified Metallurgists with higher requirements.  Benefits include Aetna Choice POS II Medical, Met Life Dental, vision care, tuition aid, and company-matched 401 (k).  Relocation expenses are available. Requires permanent U.S. residency, a BS/MS/or PhD in Material Science or Metallurgy, six or more years of ferrous metallurgy industry experience utilizing heat-treating, and a knack for making technical presentations to management.  They requested some supervisory experience, but they will also consider Senior Metallurgists/ Team Leaders ready for their first management role. They hope to locate someone with an interest in metal fatigue, with exposure to thermal and chemical processing, electroplating, and machining.  Aerospace manufacturing background is ideal.
