“It is very rewarding to see the product come off the line and know that I played a role in making that happen. I’m proud to see the passion of our people and I enjoy mentoring our talent - they are why I love working in manufacturing.”

Gina joined Owens Corning 15 years ago as part of the Finance and Accounting Leadership Program. Since then, she has advanced to positions of increasing responsibility and is currently a controller at the company’s Irving, Texas roofing and asphalt facility. As Controller, Gina oversees total site-wide spending for the roofing and asphalt plants and is responsible for all procurement and shipping activities onsite. Gina’s technical skills and ability to manage major change within site operating processes allowed her to flawlessly execute a complex rollout of an automated inventory management (IVC) system. Additionally, she has developed best practices and provided outstanding transparency to financial areas of operations, allowing all departments to use financial data to identify improvement opportunities.

As an expert within the controller community, Gina is regularly asked to mentor and accompany the onboarding of new controllers. In addition to mentoring controllers in various Owens Corning plants, Gina has successfully mentored candidates through the FALP program, which is aimed at developing future plant controllers. As an outstanding developer of financial talent within Owens Corning, Gina has positively impacted several within the company.

Keeping with her plant’s commitment to be good citizens of the neighborhoods in which they operate in and to help those in need, Gina strives to make a difference in her community. Through the years, Gina has been an active participant in numerous Habitat for Humanity projects in both Dallas and Denver. She also serves as a mentor through a program in Irving that facilitates one-on-on mentoring between adults and students. By allowing youth to interact with business professionals in their own neighborhoods, the program aims to help local students become and remain the best students they can be.
