Buffalo, NY, March 25, 2014 – Rich Products Corporation associate Maureen Lynch was named to the second annual “Making Their Mark” list by the Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF) at its leadership development conference in Dallas today.
Lynch, a Sales & Operations Leader, was among five women to receive the prestigious industry honor. She has led Rich’s integrated business planning covering the U.S.-Canada Region since January 2012. Under her guidance, the company has met or exceeded key business objectives and evaluated monthly projects for product, demand, supply and financials while allocating resources for customer needs.
Her leadership of this cross-functional initiative resulted in Rich’s receiving the Oliver Wight “Class A” Advanced certification last July, an award received by only a few companies. This success led to an expansion of sales and operations planning initiatives into the company’s international markets.
Lynch, who joined Rich’s in 2003, also has extensive experience in plant management, quality assurance, supply chain governance and new product development. She has held several leadership positions in improving planning and governance for many of the company’s global manufacturing facilities. She also leads a leadership and mentoring program for associates to cultivate their talent.
A graduate of Canisius College, Lynch earned an MBA from Niagara University and was named to the Business First’s “40 Under 40” list of outstanding young leaders in 2009.
