Diversified Plastics, Inc. (DPI), an employee-owned plastic-injection molder and digital manufacturer, recently promoted three employees to supervisory positions in order to develop more leaders within the company and to provide additional career growth opportunities for employees. DPI is proud of its diverse, multicultural workforce and is committed to ensuring its supervisors and managers reflect the diversity of the company’s employee base.
Janel Rosine was promoted from customer service to sales/customer advocate supervisor. A 14-year employee, Rosine has advanced her career by learning as much as possible about DPI’s customers and is recognized as a strong customer advocate. She has also taken continuing education classes to improve her skills. Rosine’s career goals are to bring new customers to DPI and continue to grow customer advocacy as a strategic part of DPI.
Mayet Peterson was promoted from lead medical assembly to manufacturing supervisor. A 27-year employee, in her new role Peterson sees a big opportunity to improve efficiency by combining assembly and production, rather than continuing to operate as two separate departments. Peterson’s ability to work well in the team and her excellent time management skills make her a strong team member.
Prathna Oudom was promoted from process engineer to production supervisor/process engineer. A two-year employee, Oudom believes to be successful, a person needs to work really hard in order to get what they want in their career, and this quote from Martin Luther King Jr. sums it up for him: “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” He embraces the challenges of simultaneously being a production supervisor and process engineer, and having much responsibility to get things done on time.
“I’m proud to announce these promotions and recognize the dedication and hard work on behalf of our customers that these individuals exemplify,” says Kevin Hogan, CEO of Diversified Plastics, Inc. “It’s always exciting to recognize new leaders who step forward and take up the challenge to continuously find ways to best serve our customers. In addition, we celebrate Prathna Oudom, a native Cambodian, and Mayet Peterson, a Philippine native. These individuals embody the American Dream of upward mobility no matter where we’re born, and all of these new supervisors are excellent examples of hard work resulting in greater responsibilities.”
