“Henry Ford once said failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, but this time more intelligently. For those wishing to pursue a career in manufacturing, I would advise them to seize every opportunity in the manufacturing arena.”

As Senior Director of Global Engineering, Wendy is responsible for all aspects of SC Johnson’s engineering function around the globe.  She leads the development of people, standards, processes and systems designed to achieve and sustain industry-leading performance in speed to market, capital allocation and a range of other engineering-related metrics.
Since joining SC Johnson in 2010, Wendy has provided invaluable leadership in leading the transition from separate engineering capabilities located around the world to a fully integrated global engineering function. She is driving the organization to identify, share and reuse best practices; collaborate on new tools for capital and project management; and more efficiently use engineering investments.
