William Gallacher, 37
Production Manager, Mestek Inc.
Westfield, MA, United States
AS Electronics Technology, Coastline Community College, BS Business Administration, American International University MBA, University of Massachusetts

Will took control of a failing electronics manufacturing facility in 2010 and has turned it into a successful and modern manufacturing facility through Lean manufacturing practices. He is only the sixth person at his company to earn a 6 Sigma Green Belt, and has worked with in house software engineers to build a manufacturing execution system (MES) that tracks live production, making the shop transparent to the firm and its customers.

FUN FACT: Will served 10 years in the Navy and has a real passion for military personnel and the United States.
