AriAnne Sproat Named 2017 Face of the Supply Chain
MHI awarded International Technical Coatings (ITC) Chief Operating Officer AriAnne Sproat with the 2017 Face of the Supply Chain award at MHI Industry Night at ProMat 2017 on April 5. Award judges were inspired by her story and recognized Sproat as a role model for the next generation of workers in the supply chain.
Sproat began her journey at ITC as a receptionist and now works as the company’s COO. She proudly wears the trailblazer label for women in business and, in particular, the manufacturing industry. She has spent the past 18 years as a role model, demonstrating to the company founders and all employees that there is no task she can’t handle — and handle successfully.
“This is so exciting! It’s truly an honor to be recognized for my accomplishments and I owe a big part of that to ITC and the opportunities they have given me to achieve that success,” said Sproat. “I’m proud to be the 2017 Face of the Supply Chain and hope my story will make an impact on those who are pursuing a career in the manufacturing industry.”
MHI’s #IWorkInTheSupplyChain campaign helps promote jobs within manufacturing and the supply chain as an innovative and rewarding career choice as an effort to change the perception of working within the industry. The goal of the program is to connect, engage and inspire next-generation workers to pursue manufacturing and supply chain careers.
