Summer Series – Johnson and Johnson
Heeeeeeeelllllllllooooooo from Cincinnati! I’m currently spending my summer rocking out at Ethicon Endo-Surgery here in Ohio. The Johnson and Johnson EES business unit creates, markets, and sells medical devices for minimally evasive surgery. As a supply chain specialist, I’ve been working with suppliers, warehouse logistic managers, and transportation carriers in order to reduce the amount of product expedited (air freighted) from the suppliers to our warehousing facilities. Not only have I been plugging away at my project, but I’ve also met with Chief Procurement Officers, Vice Presidents, and Presidents of various departments in one-on-one meetings. Can you believe that they’ve already flown me to New Jersey for a three day trip? Seriously, how can you lose?
As a hardcore Steelers fan, I did have some initial doubts about moving into Bengals Country (not to mention the home of many Ohio State fans). However, I’ve already watched a Reds game from a luxury box, knocked the stuffing out a few softballs in our company softball league, spent more than a few evenings in Mount Adams (a social haven for young professionals), plan to tear it up on the golf course this Thursday, and hope to visit either the Zoo, Aquarium, or King’s Island Theme park before I leave. Woo Woo Woo.
Catch you on the flip side, my friends.
