Tim Rodgers


I'm a director-level global operations manager experienced in leading hardware engineering and new product development teams, project & program management (PMP certification), quality engineering (Six Sigma Black Belt), and international manufacturing and supply chain management for consumer electronics and industrial markets. Generally, I am skilled in reducing costs, improving product quality, leading new product introduction, improving productivity, streamlining processes, leading preventive and corrective actions, optimizing systems, managing change, eliminating waste, achieving rapid time-to-market, and generally completing projects on-time and on-budget. I particularly enjoy working in a nimble, entrepreneurial environment at a growing business. I receive strong, positive feedback as a highly-effective leader and manager. I have worked in international businesses throughout my career, and spent two years as an ex-pat in China. I have broad, cross-functional experience that enables me to collaborate more effectively with my internal and external business partners. I have repeatedly demonstrated my ability to take on new challenges and quickly achieve success.
