It may not be quite the fame of being on the cover of Cosmo or People, but Winsert CEO Trisha Lemery has become a poster child for the manufacturing leadership and capabilities of Northeast Wisconsin as of late.
Just this week, Lemery was featured as the Manufacturing Leader of the week by IndustryWeek, an online and print publication that covers advanced manufacturing industries. The online story focuses on the challenges of second-generation leadership and how Winsert has not only avoided the pitfalls, but flourished and diversified with Lemery at the helm.
That recognition comes on the heels of Lemery’s selection as the EY’s National 2016 Entrepreneur Of The Year award winner in the family business category. She had previously been selected as a regional winner. In both cases, judges cited her entrepreneurial spirit and ability to establish Winsert, located in Marinette, as an international industry leader.
A panel of judges cited those same traits when it awarded Winsert a 2016 Insight Innovation Award this past May. The Insight Innovation Award judges noted, “Winsert is an industry leader in innovation, customer focus and market disruption, putting the Marinette community first.” They recognized the company’s innovative alloy solutions for large global manufacturers, its new research and development facility and “A” supplier ratings from Volvo, GE Energy, Daimler, Rolls Royce, Cummins, Harley Davidson and John Deere.
The honors and accolades speak well of Winsert and Lemery’s continued success into 2017 but also highlight the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of Northeast Wisconsin as a whole.
