New Manufacturing Sector Strategist Joins CareerSource Capital Region

CareerSource Capital Region is proud to welcome Larry Minnich as its new Manufacturing Sector Strategist.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know and assisting the manufacturers in the capital area with the staff training and development they may need to help keep their operations thriving,” said Larry Minnich, Manufacturing Sector Strategist. “My goal is to be a valuable ‘go-to’ resource for company and career seeker needs, while networking closely with the various community organizations that promote and support our manufacturing industry, aligning with solutions offered through other resource partners.  Our manufacturing sector strategies grant helps manufacturers who are in need of training for their staff meet the challenges they face today. Whether it’s training existing staff on new technology or training new staff on existing technology, our grant can be invaluable to manufacturers in the region.”

During a 40-plus year career in manufacturing, Minnich has held a broad range of direct management positions (including business leader roles and P&L responsibilities with several business units), along with program and project management positions at plant and corporate levels.  He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ohio State University.

Minnich recently relocated to Tallahassee from Wisconsin and is passionate about manufacturing.  He brings a deep and broad appreciation of manufacturing business processes (and challenges) to his new role. He describes his style as detailed and hands-on, and looks forward to working closely with regional manufacturers, educators and community partners in his new role.

“We are thrilled to have Larry join our team!” said Hadassah Israel, Events and Special Projects Manager. “He brings years of experience in the manufacturing sector to our organization and truly understands how our grant and CareerSource Capital Region can help regional manufacturers.  I know he will truly be an asset.”
