Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/18/2015 -- Whitney Blackburn, brand manager for Hytrol Conveyor Co., was featured in Quality Digest in the series of articles highlighting women leaders in manufacturing. Industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, authored the article titled, "How Women Can Transcend Barriers to Management Positions," which examined women in manufacturing leadership roles.
Blackburn shared, "The nature of today's workplace is much more conducive to the innate skill set of women. Employee engagement and retention require empathy, strong communication skills, and the ability to build lasting relationships. With a natural inclination toward this leadership style, women more readily create an environment where talent can be nurtured. In the last 10 years, it seems that more companies are willing to embrace this approach and place women in a position to foster a team-minded environment."
Blackburn began her career as an art director for a visual communications company, where she built a reputation for intuitive design and creative leadership. Equipped with a passion for intelligent marketing and a deep curiosity for all things outside her comfort zone, Blackburn has spent the past five years pursuing a career within the material handling industry. Blackburn has advanced quickly and now serves as brand manager for Hytrol Conveyor Co., where she is responsible for the development and execution of inbound marketing strategies, brand identity and awareness, campaign development, trade show exhibition, and lead nurturing.
