James Mata


Effective leader with over 30 years of manufacturing experience, and 20 plus years of management experience. Results driven, with a continuous improvement mindset. Ability to successfully implement Lean Manufacturing Principles. Domestic & International project management experience. Due to the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, Oakley was forced into a layoff, and reorganization. As a result, my position as Director Manufacturing was eliminated. I was given a new opportunity to join the HR team, still supporting the manufacturing operation. My passion is leading teams, driving change that deliver positive results for the organization and team, while helping others to grow in their career. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity Oakley has provided, but I am seeking new opportunities within an operation management role. • Lean Manufacturing Practices • Operations Management • Cross Functional Leader • Site Safety • Budgeting & Cost Savings • Inventory Control • Process Control • Training & Development • Visual Management
