Blake J Merrell

With 5 years of management experience in the building materials industry and 8 years as a Lean Six Sigma engineer, I make it my priority to serve those I lead, drive fear from the workplace, and achieve operational excellence.

Continuous Improvement is a lifelong passion and I strive daily to improve and help those with me engage in the same circadian CI rhythm. I use Lean and Servant Leadership principles as my guide.

I received the Foxworth-Galbraith Phoenix Award in 2019 the first year of becoming a General Manager. I achieved significant IFO improvement from the prior year, taking the operation from profit loss to profit-making.
