West Ambassador Intern
July 30, 2014
The summer 2014 term has posed a challenge that I welcomed as an opportunity for personal growth in terms of my assignment. It is within my role to travel to various West facilities to research, develop and present a five-year projected marketing plan for the Daikyo Crystal Zenith® vial market. I am a packaging engineer by trade, so needless to say, this more business-like role is a challenge that allows me to evaluate another part of the organization where I can use and incorporate my technical background into a more collaborative and customer-facing role. I will continue to support the efforts of Graham Reynolds and Kevin Cancelliere, two strong leaders within the PDS organization, until the beginning of August. With more than half of my internship complete, I am confident in the knowledge and contributions that I have made thus far. In addition, I am eager to present my plan on the alternative ways of navigating through the Crystal Zenith vial market later this month.
