Decatur, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/13/2015 -- Kara Demirjian Huss, Vice President and Global Marketing Director for T/CCI Manufacturing, was featured in Quality Digest in the first of a series of articles highlighting women leaders in manufacturing. Industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, authored the article titled, "Room at the Top," which examined women in manufacturing leadership roles.
Demirjian started her career in fashion marketing then moved to manufacturing, leading marketing efforts for family companies including Tillotson (carburetors for power tools) and T/CCI (air conditioning compressors for heavy duty trucks and military vehicles). In 2000, with business partner Katherine Smith, she launched DCC Marketing Group. Her leadership and expertise meld practical business strategies with strong marketing plans that move the needle for businesses.
Demirjian discussed the most significant changes she has seen in manufacturing over the years, "Particularly in manufacturing, I think the thing that strikes me as the most significant change in thought is that men are starting to recognize women's strength in STEM careers. Although still very male dominated, it's not uncommon for us to consider female engineers or machining techs. And it's not just that men are accepting women in the field, it's also that women are accepting the field in general."
