A Day in the Life at AME: VP of Operations

A vice president of operations supports the growth and adds to the bottom line of an organization through strategic planning and goal setting.

Brad Patterson, recently promoted from VP of Operations to Chief Improvement Officer at Advanced Machine & Engineering (AME), discusses what he believes are important qualifications and skill sets for a VP of Operations in a manufacturing environment to be successful:

  • A broad background in leadership, communication, and management
  • Superior people and collaborative skills
  • Openmindedness to learn new things on a daily basis
  • An ability to problem solve and work through challenges

“You learn as you go.
You’re never a completed project in this business.
You’re always learning.”
