FINDLAY — Longtime Whirlpool employee Melissa Greenlee was recognized with a 2019 STEP Ahead award, given by the National Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing Institute recognizing women in manufacturing.
“Melissa is the consummate professional who is known for her ability to drive differentiated business results while being an exceptional developer of people,” Jim Keppler, vice president for NAR integrated supply chain and quality for Whirlpool, said in a statement announcing Greenlee’s award. “She is a role model for other women in manufacturing at Whirlpool Corporation.”
Greenlee has promoted science, technology, engineering and math education in local schools and has worked to inspire young women to pursue careers in those fields, according to Whirlpool. She joins two fellow Whirlpool employees Jenni Hanna and Mae Zyjewski as STEP Ahead award recipients.
