As an engineer with experience spanning a number of major multinational companies, Michelle has managed technical sales support teams for about a decade, notably as head of a customized product development engineering team for clients and as an active member of an R&D team tasked with implementing innovative solutions that have revolutionized the field of outside lighting. She later switched to operations, where she exercised multiple responsibilities, mainly for managing production, OSH, maintenance and environmental teams.
With excellent training in lean manufacturing and continuous improvement, she enjoys leading her teams toward organizational excellence by applying a number of these principles. She ensures her work is always properly organized and never settles for the status quo. As a Gaspé Peninsula native, she elected to venture outside her home region to establish her career. Though entirely comfortable in an urban environment, Michelle has a keen preference for life near the sea. In joining the Nergica team, she considers that she will be able to continue to promote her environmental values while remaining close to her roots.
