MEET THE MHEDA'S 2015 BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOARD MHEDA's 2015 Board of Directors and Manufacturers Board of Advisors (MBOA) T his year's MHEDA Convention theme is "Culture That Rocks" and throughout the four issues of the magazine this year we will be placing an emphasis on how you can get your business rocking and rolling. We asked MHEDA's Board of Directors and MBOA members about what makes a material handling rock star, what rock star qualities their employees have and who their favorite bands are. See their responses and get to know this year's Board and MBOA members as they prepare to help you in 2015. Mark Milovich MHEDA President President, Lift Atlanta, Inc. Decatur, GA A material handling rock star is someone with the ability to find and offer cost-effective solutions to customers' material handling problems. They are able to go in and learn a customer's business, listen to their issues and then provide the right equipment for the job instead of just proposing the status quo. Favorite Band: Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band Scott Lee MHEDA President-Elect President, Conveyor Solutions, Inc. Schaumburg, IL A true material handling rock star has a never ending desire and ability to learn. Our industry, much like music, changes over time. Our rock stars must be aware of this change and embrace it at every turn. When you're riding the wave of change, it requires taking risks. Successful people in our industry must be willing to take a risk, fall down, get back up, brush it off and learn from their mistake all while keeping a smile on their face! Favorite Band: Zac Brown Band 18 MHEDA | Mark Juelich MHEDA Treasurer Chairman/CEO, American Warehouse Systems Blaine, MN A rock star in our industry requires perseverance, integrity and ingenuity. Our employees work hard to deliver application specific systems with an honest handshake. I am confident that AWS employees have all three of these rock star qualities. Favorite Band: The Police/Sting Buddy Smith MHEDA Vice President CEO, Carolina Material Handling Services Columbia, SC I believe a company that has a culture of continuous improvement and a commitment to strategic planning and workplace excellence is a rock star company. In order to do this, a company must participate in benchmarking and networking and ultimately become a real student of their business and industry. Favorite Band: The Doobie Brothers
