Ruby Bernard
Associate Team Manager
Eastman Chemical Company
Kingsport, TN

“Industrialization and manufacturing have been the catalysts for economic development enabling Americans to enjoy more opportunities and improved lifestyles. I believe that to be a strong country, with citizens who feel valued and confident, we must continue to be the leader of innovation, technology, and manufacturing.”

As Associate Team Manager at Eastman Chemical Company, Ruby uses her extensive experience and deep process knowledge as a manager and an individual contributor.
First selected as a Team Manger in 1996, Ruby rose through the Team Manager ranks to the level of Principal Team Manager in 2004. Ruby’s performance so exceeded defined job classification requirements that the level of Associate Team Manager was defined to encompass all she does.
Ruby is sought after by her peers and serves as a mentor for newer Team Managers.  Staff and development engineers within the division seek her input on improvement projects because of her knowledge of the production processes.  Ruby holds herself to extremely high standards of performance and expects the same from those who work for and with her.
