Meet Harlee Guggisberg. She currently serves a dual role as Aalberts surface technologies – accurate brazing’s Assistant General Manager and Quality Manager in the Manchester, CT facility. She has been part of the team for six years.
Harlee realized a huge accomplishment earlier this month! She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern New Hampshire University in Operations Management with a concentration in Project Management. She worked very hard to complete this degree, while managing her career and her young family. (Congrats Harlee! We are very proud of you!)
The most rewarding part of her job, she says, is ensuring an employee is successful by assigning them to a role that best matches their strengths and weaknesses.
And, Harlee says the best advice she has gotten is from her current boss, Bob Sartori. “You can explain late parts. You can’t explain bad parts,” meaning that it is better to put a job on hold and communicate with the customer than push jobs through and process them incorrectly. She reflects on this advice daily and believes that “this is how we keep earning the loyalty of our customers. Communication is extremely important as heat treatment is often done on finished parts near the end of their production process.”
Harlee grew up in Winsted, CT. And currently, she resides in Bristol, CT with her husband, two children, and two German Shepherds. Outside of work you will find her spending time with her family or working on art projects. She likes to draw portraits and has lots of fun directing art & crafts projects with her kids.
