Say Hi to Mary!
Mary is head of procurement and supply at Smiley Monroe, where she directs the company’s supply chain operations, from purchasing and inventory of raw materials to vendor selection and development.
In Mary’s eventful first two years with the Lisburn based producer of conveyor belts – aka the Giants of Belting – she has visited Asia, helped steer the business and her team through the implementation of its first ERP system, a global pandemic and Brexit. Not to mention being part of the project team that launched Smiley Monroe Inc’s US facility in Kentucky, renewing a 100% renewable energy contract and some very big stock takes.
As an active member of Smiley Monroe’s senior management team, Mary leads by example – perfectly embodying the company’s values of problem solvers, determined succeed and one big family. Her data driven approach, efficiency, diligence and diverse experience in the automotive and telecoms manufacturing sectors (“buses and phones”) and sense of fun are all key ingredients in Mary’s strategic mix.
