Host Jesse Tyler is joined by three great co-owners at Cirtronics: Kerry Watson, Quality Assurance Engineer (23-1/2 yrs); Jake Girouard, Mechanical Manufacturing Engineer (8 years); and Matt Duchesne, Shipper Level 3 (20+ years).
Each guest shares personal insights on what ownership means to them; how they describe ownership when talking to family, friends, and strangers; the three words they use to describe ownership; their EO A-ha moments; and why anyone seeking work should consider a career at Cirtronics.
The goal of this podcast is to have owner-to-owner discussions about a wide range of ownership experiences and culture topics, and to bring more insight into the individual ownership experience.
"Cirtronics was founded in 1979 by Gerardine Ferlins. Her goal was to build a company that was as focused on people as it was on profits. And not just focused on its own people, but also its customers, community and suppliers. Forty plus years later, we are still operating under Gerardine’s philosophy. The power of her philosophy shows in our long-term customer relationships, as well as our strong market position and business growth. Cirtronics continues to be a leading New England contract manufacturer for complex systems. We work together with our customers, as a team, to build amazing things.
We build teams as well as products. We purposefully extend our definition of “team” to include each of the “Six We Serve”: Customers, Community, Suppliers, Environment, Employee Owner, and the Corporation. Our team includes You. We’re deliberately inclusive. We value each team member and welcome their unique contributions. We treat each other with respect, kindness and honesty. This is the foundation of our business.
As manufacturers, we take pride in providing high-quality services and processes that support your success. As owners, your success is our success. Through our Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP), every Cirtronics employee is a part-owner of the company."
