“Manufacturing is the heart of the products we sell, heart that can be found in the talented men and women who work each day to produce quality products both safely and efficiently. It has been my honor to work with these individuals producing products that make a positive difference.”

Regan began her career as a process engineer and after demonstrating exceptional leadership skills moved through a series of progressively responsible roles, including Customer Service Manager, Production Manager and Plant Manager before becoming Operations Director for all of Process Systems. She developed an operational vision for manufacturing in Process Systems which has been incorporated into all of the world-wide locations. As a result of her outstanding communication skills, she has been able to communicate the vision to European and U.S. managers and generate buy-in and action to deliver the vision. She has also served in a leadership role as a member of the Great Place to Work Team.
Regan acts as an official mentor in the Saint-Gobain Mentoring Program. In addition, she has been responsible for the career development of the Process Systems Plant Managers.  In particular she has worked closely with two individuals whom she mentored as they developed skills that led to their growth within the organization.  She is recognized as a widely accessible mentor who readily shares her time and talent, not only to help others grow, but to help the business as a whole.
Regan is involved in the company’s CSR efforts and diversity efforts, via her role in the Women’s Network at Saint-Gobain. She believes in giving back to the community and is an active participant in the company’s relationship with YouthBuild USA, which takes out of work, out of school youth and helps them to transform their lives as they work on community-based construction projects.
