Aesoph shares on Management Process

Steven Aesoph, a maintenance shop supervisor at UTC Aerospace Systems, spoke about the management process he and his staff have implemented to make their department more efficient at the recent Jamestown Rotary Club meeting.

Prior to coming to UTC, Aesoph was in retail banking. He said going to manufacturing was a real eye opener, but it became a positive advantage and he had no preconceived ideas. He said he could look at the management process with fresh ideas and processes. He said his goal is to help other businesses use these same principles he used in manufacturing that can be adapted to any type of business or organization.

Mark Sherfy welcomed everyone to the meeting, Carrie Orn gave the table blessing, Gary Riffe and Mark Reeves led the group in singing, and Tim Ottmar collected “Happy Dollars” for Rotary projects.

Jamestown High School junior Karly Bennett is the National Honor Society student this month. She is the daughter of Danel Rosa and Michael Bennett. She is involved in National Honor Society, church activities, art classes at the Arts Center and in orchestra. Her hobbies are art, writing and longboarding. She is a barista at Babb’s Coffee House.
