HUSCO INTERNATIONAL INC.

GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS

For the past ten years, Angela Stemo has played a critical role in Waukesha-based Husco International’s record-setting revenue growth by helping to recruit, retain and develop talent. When COVID-19 struck, Stemo quickly developed and implemented new policies to support in-person work for the company’s essential manufacturing workforce while simultaneously creating remote-work flexibility for the engineering and office staff. She also recently oversaw a more than $10 million remodel of the company’s corporate headquarters, transforming the office into a modern campus that is consistent with Husco’s high-technology product line. Earlier in her tenure at Husco, Stemo implemented a talent management program utilizing non-traditional performance reviews that emphasize communication between managers and employees to support employee growth and further Husco objectives. She also led a significant redesign of Husco’s on-campus recruiting, training and employee retention programs for more than 1,500 associates worldwide.

For 17 years, Lisa Brown has been a leader in the manufacturing industry. Today, as the director of continuous improvement - customer experience at Waukesha-based Generac Power Systems, Brown has made significant contributions to help innovate and expand the company’s manufacturing capabilities, transform business processes and serve the community. In her current role, and as a key member of the corporate development team, she has led the successful integration of several domestic and international companies to expand Generac’s global manufacturing footprint and product innovation capabilities. In 2019, Brown was promoted to her current role within the global operations team. “With her effective leadership and proven project management expertise, she is leading a new, enterprise-wide initiative to drive sustainable process improvements and waste elimination within the company’s manufacturing organization to ultimately enhance customers’ experiences,” said Tom Pettit, chief operations officer at Generac.

MIRANDA MARTENS Plant manager DENALI INGREDIENTS LLC For the past 12 years, Miranda Martens has had a relentless focus on driving new initiatives and challenging the status quo at New Berlin-based Denali Ingredients LLC. Denali is an ingredients manufacturer serving the ice cream, novelty, fluid dairy, bakery, and food service markets. She started as a temporary hourly employee in the quality lab and transitioned to the role of quality supervisor before working her way up to her current position as plant manager. Denali has achieved six consecutive years of growth under her leadership and is positioned to continue that trajectory. According to Robb Hinn, vice president of operations at Denali Ingredients, much of the company’s manufacturing success can be attributed to her determination to solve problems and strategize options in not only areas of her expertise, but also areas of limited exposure. Over the past 18 months, Martens led the implementation of the company’s new ERP software, which has led to accurate, real-time data driving its manufacturing strategy.
