Podcast: Bead Industries – Empowering Your People
From Made in America with Ari Santiago:
Jill Mayer, CEO, is bringing Bead Industries, a 100+ year old company in Milford CT, to new heights. They are updating their marketing, technology, and management systems to empower their people, encourage a younger workforce, and take their company into the future.
In this episode, Jill tells wonderful stories about the history of her family and the company and how they intertwine. She talks about her start in the manufacturing industry, her move into the CEO role, and how she views herself as the company visionary, rather than the integrator. Jill discusses her passion of being a servant-leader and teaching her team that everyone makes an impact.
