Tara Boutin
Manager, Inside Sales
Sandvik Coromant

Fair Lawn, NJ


“My role model is my Mother, Carol Wark.  She is the driving force in my life.  She is the map that I follow - from being a mentor, a friend, a sister, a wife, and a Mom.  She inspires me every day with her strength and her ability to love. She has always encouraged and supported my goals and ambitions.  She is not only my Mom, she is my best friend.”

Tara is extremely effective at developing relationships between stakeholders. She shares her knowledge and experience with her team and supports the group so that all members feel acknowledged, and so that all options and variables are considered.

As a non-engineering advisor to the Engineering group, she brings a strong customer perspective to this critical area and mentors multiple relationships to help develop a more user-friendly sounding board for the group.  Tara used input she received, along with her own skills and knowledge, to improve the efficiency of back office processes. She has taken responsiblity for a  reconditioning project to provide better solutions to customer problems. 

She believes in taking accountability in identifying problems and proposing solutions.  She serves as an exceptional role model to both young women and men who may not have considered technical careers.
