Exploring EverLast®: Meet Paul Wickett!
March 7th, 2013 - In the 8th installment of our series our featured EverLast® professional for the month is our Vice President of Engineering, Paul Wickett!
Paul Wickett is a professional Engineering expert who joined EverLast® Lighting in February of 2013.
Wickett is orgininally from Canada, where he attended Toronto University and received a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Shortly after that he went on to attend the University of Michigan for graduate school where he received a Master's degree in Engineering Management.
Wickett joined EverLast® on February 4thof this year after 21 years of engineering expertise at Robert Bosch, LLC. and immediately began re-designing EverLast® engineering processes to encourage the manufacturing of new induction fixtures, U.S. Made products, and specification processes.
Wickett is also a certified Black Belt in Design For Six Sigma (DFSS) which is a separate and emerging business-process management methodology related to traditional Six Sigma. While the Six Sigma process requires the tools and order to be in place and functioning, a DFSS has the objective of determining the needs of customers and the business, and driving those needs into the product solution so created. “One of my immediate goals is to begin the re-engineering of products that the lighting industry has never before seen in the U.S.,” Wickett stated. “It amazes me to see the caliber of employee’s at this organization and the skillset that we have available to make this idea a reality. There is some top manufacturing talent beneath the EverLast® umbrella.”
In Paul's spare time he enjoys traveling, skiing, and spending time with his family.
