ShoreMaster, LLC recently re-acquired the talents of Chet VanSyckel to lead the company’s Total Quality Management efforts across all brands and operations as it continues to see growth from recent strategic positioning of its brands and a re-organization of its nationwide sales force that includes new sales leadership from regional sales managers.
“Chet brings with him a tremendous amount of organizational process management skills, and his ability to effectively lead staff at all levels of an organization in any type of growth cycle, make him an incredibly good fit for our culture as we continue to grow.” said ShoreMaster Vice President of Operations, Rob Katzenmeyer. “Chet drove substantial improvements in lead times, product quality, safety, and operations at our Concrete Floating Dock manufacturing facilities in St. Augustine, Florida and Chet will be a great asset to us as we continue to capitalize on our current and forecasted growth opportunities across all segments of our business.”
Chet will manage and lead ShoreMaster’s Total Quality Management System as the company continues to make process improvements that will sustain its already strong market position, high level of customer service, nationwide distribution, and industry–leading manufacturing operations.
When asked about his management philosophy, Chet said “I think I lead by creating leaders. Throughout my career, I’ve had a lot of success and found a lot of operational wins by simply making small, yet impactful improvements that affect the entire process in a positive way. I like to lead by pulling my team members toward a goal, rather than pushing them into it. This way, everyone wins, and the process is improved as a result.”
Chet brings with him a wealth of operational expertise in process management and continuous improvement and studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware and holds a General Contractors License in Florida.
