Mike Stokes

Chief Operations Officer at Pressed

My strength is in solving the most complex business and technical problems. Whether this is through developing a creative, data driven and engaged work environment or understanding and solving complex engineering problems. I have many specific examples though my career where I have solved complex high value business problems. With POM Wonderful I determined that our existing pomegranate seed (Arils) extraction method would not meet customer demand and would limit growth of the business. I lead a team that developed a new Patent Pending extraction process that increased Yield by 50% and total output volume by 10x. On the beverage side of the business our improvement team has been able to increase OEE by 10% points in 2 months. As a Regional Director of Alcoa I was able to lead the Visalia operation to be recognized as a top five plant in employee engagement among the Global Alcoa organization of over 400 plants. I have over 20 years of operational experience and 16 years in Management. I specialize in solving complex issues and implementing a problem solving culture. In past roles I have been able to: - Reduced Recordable Injuries by 50% - 1,500 days since the last LWD injury - 2x the previous record - Reduced Fabrication defect rates by 35% - Reduced hourly wages as a percent of revenue by 15% in a falling market - Improve customer delivery “On Time In Full” from 93% to 97% in 1 year - Implemented five fabrication cells - increasing labor flexibility and reduced cost by 40% - Implemented the Toyota based “A3 Thinking” process in the organization Specialties: Process Improvement, 6 Sigma, SMED, Kaizen, Process Mapping, Thought mapping, Lean Manufacturing, 5S, Developing others, Cellular Manufacturing, Rapid Improvement Workshops, Value Stream Mapping, Mistake proofing, Social Styles, Myers Briggs, Problem Solving
