Martha Paluch

November 2012 Member Spotlight

HYPE Member Since:  2010

Employer: Phoenix Manufacturing

Industry/Job Title:  Operations Specialist

What she does: Phoenix Manufacturing is a supplier of precision aircraft components for civilian and military aviation. It is a family business started by my father over twenty years ago. I moved home from Washington D.C. two years ago for this job and have loved working in a small business. As is common with small companies, my responsibilities encompass a wide area including maintaining our AS9100 C registered quality system, ERP system, export compliance, customer support and whatever else needs to be done. I enjoy the variety and am never bored!

Future Aspirations: Attend the Olympic Games. It would be awesome to witness either the Summer or Winter games firsthand.

My favorite thing about being a HYPE Member: is seeing how much it has grown and developed in the short time since I joined. HYPE now offers so much great programming that there is something for everyone and they keep adding new stuff! As a runner, I am particularly excited about the 5k that HYPE and the MetroHartford Alliance is organizing in conjunction with the Hartford Marathon Foundation on November 11, 2012
