Amber Holland
Director, IS Administration Systems
Shaw Industries Group Inc.

“The manufacturing industry provides a diverse set of career opportunities and experiences. I have been able to utilize my engineering education and passion for process improvement in areas ranging from production operations to administration. It is this type of variety that keeps me excited and ready for tomorrow's challenge.”
 

Amber is a highly-respected leader and has proven her versatility throughout her career. She has been successful in bringing her leadership and Lean Six Sigma skills not only into the world of administration, but also into the world of technology. Her non-traditional skill set coupled with her leadership style allowed her to transform several IS processes that are critical to Shaw’s success. 
 
She serves on the Corporate Steering Team of the Shaw Women's Innovation Network, focusing on inspiring and empowering women within the organization.  She also is part of the Corporate Mentoring Committee, whose current initiative involves partnership with the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, a STEAM school, to begin a mentoring program for young girls from low income families. 
 
Amber is a role model for all Shaw associates. Her commitment to developing women overall at Shaw, and specifically the associates in her department, is displayed in many forms including formal mentoring partnerships, coaching sessions, advocacy, and sponsorships. Her guidance and leadership have enabled her mentees to excel within their positions and helped prepare them to move up within the organization. 
 
Amber also gives back to the community where she lives and was raised. She is a member of the United Way and has served on several non-profit boards, including Treasurer and Vice-Chairman of the Board for the Whitfield Dalton Day Care Center and Treasurer for the Brookwood Elementary PTA. In addition to her volunteer work on the boards and with United Way agencies, Amber has been an instructor with Junior Achievement for both elementary and middle school programs.
