Following successful work with Whirlpool, Ryerson and Inland Steel, Deb joined ACE METAL CRAFTS COMPANY in 2000 as the Sales & Marketing Manager. During her tenure at ACE, Deb’s responsibilities have grown to include developing and executing the company’s strategic plan, creating and implementing company policy and guidelines and developing and meeting company revenue and profitability goals.
This comprehensive new business development strategy has been accomplished with a goal of fostering a customer-first culture, reflected by a dramatic increase in ACE’s revenue over a two year period, with significant corresponding improvements in customer satisfaction, despite market conditions and volatile steel pricing.
Deb’s most rewarding accomplishments, however, are the strong and lasting relationships she’s built with customers and ACE team members. Working to develop a culture at ACE of teaching, coaching and personal development, for customers and team members alike, is truly an accomplishment in itself.
Deb has a B.S. from Illinois State University and is an active member of the Association of Women in the Metal Industries (AWMI).
