Tim Grein, President and CEO of Walbar Engine Components
Prior to divestiture from United Technologies in September 2016, Walbar Engine Components struggled to control costs, manage on-time delivery, and meet customer expectations. Under Tim Grein’s leadership the company immediately focused on the basics: people first, quality, customer delivery, and controlled spending. Tim led the team by empowering each of them to do what they do best, and today Walbar has restored its position as a world-class, independent turbine component manufacturer.
Dr. Robert Trenschel, President and CEO of Yuma Regional Medical Center
The year before Dr. Trenschel joined Yuma Regional Medical Center as the new President and CEO, the hospital only completed 12 process improvement projects. During YRMC’s fiscal year 2018, they completed 257, and anticipates completing approximately 500 in 2019. Because Dr. Trenschel has catalyzed a culture where front line employees own quality and process improvement it shows in YRMC’s outcomes and how the community feels about its hospital.
