Karen Norheim is a terrific role model to other women (and men) in manufacturing. As Executive Vice President of American Crane and Equipment Corporation, Karen oversees the successful day-to-day operations of a 180-person manufacturing facility headquartered in Douglassville, Pennsylvania.
Hear Karen talk to M.L. Peck and Linda Rigano about how she started in the family-owned business and her hope for the next generation of men and women coming into the industry. Karen addresses the poor reputation manufacturing has had and how we can come together to change that by becoming better storytellers – sharing all the great things we can make –and the amazing career benefits. Karen is a big believer in paying it forward and she is a great example of how this works!
