Arlene Gonzalez
ExpressPlus Production Manager
NCI Group, Inc.
Houston, TX

“Manufacturing provides many career opportunities. You continue to learn and grow as the industry continues to change as new technologies, materials, processes and techniques are developed. The skills you acquire are highly valued and transferrable to any sector of the manufacturing industry.” 

Arlene leads an engineering production team charged with sales and project management oversight, engineering, designing and drafting individual building orders for NCI's buildings brands.
During Arlene’s short tenure with NCI, she has assumed increasing responsibility leading to ExpressPlus Production Manager. Arlene transitioned into this managerial role at the height of a significant growth period and raised the group to new heights.   Under Arlene’s leadership her group grew 71% in 2010 and 87% in 2011.  Her group is on track to produce in excess of $40M in 2012, a total of 233% growth.  Arlene managed this growth while only adding four staff positions and keeping cost in check, generating significant margin growth.
Arlene continues to expand her knowledge as a young manager and is establishing goals for her team in order to keep that competitive spirit alive.
