Is your company in need of a shake-up? Is it time to go out with the old and in with the new? My name is Greg Epp and I specialize in bringing manufacturing companies back to life. I’m highly motivated and determined to improve the Canadian Manucaruing industry. However, it’s a tough haul. Many companies struggle to implement the systems that will make them great. Poor attitudes, lack of discipline, and sometimes downright laziness all lead to an underperforming sector. I have heard all the excuses. The truth is manufacturing is bloody difficult, it’s extremely hard to be successful at it. But to the winners go the spoils and spoils there are plenty.
So who am I?
I am a Red Seal ticketed Millwright, former, a member in good standing, of the Canadian Forces, business owner, and manager with 17 years of diverse mechanical experience. Extrovert, I am determined to overcome obstacles and pursue objectives to completion. I am interested in taking on challenging projects as I do not shy away from getting my hands “dirty” when necessary, leading by example, and making difficult decisions when needed.
Why do you need me?
I’m the bridge between you and the shop floor. Someone has to be there to hold people accountable. “To lead from the front” and keep people focused on the mission. Change is hard, people will resist and push back, a leader has to be strong and steadfast. Cleanliness and quality standards matter. Someone needs to enforce them and mentor junior managers to carry on the new standards. I will also be their voice. Senior leadership needs to support the changes, provide the financial resources to make it happen!
What I am not.
I am not a manager, I’m a leader. I strive to inspire not dictate. To grow not to control the individual. Success for me is to see the business flourish in my absence, that is true change and the only way we will build better manufacturers together. If you are up for the challenge then please contact me.
