SCHAUMBURG - The Technology & Manufacturing Association's annual Young Leaders award was presented to Electro-Max, Inc.'s 32 year old quality manager Carlos Olivo March 3, at TMA's 92nd Annual Dinner celebration. 

Carlos' management systems director Teri Becker nominated the 32-year-old, whose "model work ethic" was a key reason she thought he deserved recognition as a young leader. Carlos has worked in manufacturing 14 years, and in his position at Electro-Max for the past four years.

"Carlos is a model employee and a bright star for the future of metal finishing," Ms. Becker said. "He has the model work ethic to learn and prove his abilities, excel at the task at hand, and humbly and gratefully accept compensation for what he has accomplished. His positive, helpful, eager to learn attitude is a driving force in the accomplishments of Electro-Max, Inc. 

Over the years, Carlos has advanced from shipping and receiving to inventory control to line operator and final inspection and testing before becoming quality manager. He shows a deep concern for the company's customers - so much so, over the past year the company has enjoyed a significant decrease in complaints. 

"We are happy to honor Carlos Olivo with TMA's 2018 Young Leader Award," said TMA Young Leaders vice-chairman Philip Lindgren of Acme Industries told the dinner audience. 

"I'm honored to receive this award," Olivo said. "I would like to thank Electro-Max for the opportunities. I want to help the company grow and be successful. Thank you so much." 

TMA's Young Leader Award is selected through a nomination process. 

"We're looking for the best and brightest that are bringing the manufacturing industry in the 21st century with new technologies and modern ideas," the Young Leaders committee told TMA members. 

The award is presented every year at TMA's Annual Dinner.
