Cynthia Fowle
Director, Global Quality
LORD Corporation
Erie, PA

“My role model instilled in me the values of hard work, self-discipline, reading and education.  She is a take-charge, can-do person who is motivated by service to others.  During significant set-backs, she remained confident and in control.  Nothing would keep her from achieving her goals.”

As Director of Global Quality, Cynthia is responsible for the Quality Management System and Quality improvement.
Cynthia led initiatives to improve quality in customer engagement, product development, and manufacturing processes.  Her leadership driving process improvements has significantly contributed to customer satisfaction, compliance with customer and regulatory requirements, successful product introductions, and attainment of annual goals to reduce cost of quality as a percentage of cost of sales and increase first pass lot acceptance of product.
Cynthia taught internal auditing, statistical quality control methods and other quality engineering courses for the Penn State Behrend Continuing Education program and is active in STEM initiatives.  She joined the Quality Assurance Committee of Aerospace Industries Association in 2010, was elected Member-at-Large in 2011 and is Chairperson for the 2012-2013 term.
