A theology of managing & manufacturing

November 19, 2012 — Leave a comment

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Mary Andringa, CEO of Vermeer Corporation and chair of the board for the National Association of Manufacturers (she’s kind of a big deal). We talked about the influences that shaped her “theological imagination” and how it relates to the way she operates her business. If you’re of the opinion that manufacturing and theology are two unrelated entities, I hope you’ll read what Mary has to say.

The story was published late last week by Fieldnotes in two parts, available here and here.

For those unacquainted, Fieldnotes is an online magazine offering “practical wisdom for emerging leaders.” Be sure to check out the great stuff they’ve published from the likes of Alissa Wilkinson, Christy Tennant Krispin, Gideon Strauss, and others.

By the way, Mary was recently featured on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams, talking about the manufacturing “renaissance” that’s currently going on in our country. Did I mention she’s a big deal?
