I'am particularly proud to to present our next Liquid Family Portrait. Today, I have the pleasure to introduce a person who is new to our Liquid team but he's definitely not new to the market. He is joining Liquid as our new Executive Vice President and he brings both knowledge, expertise and a mindset that is perfectly suited for our mission to innovate and excel in the liquid food industry. Please join me in welcoming Bob Manning to the Liquid Family.
Bob's career is a testament to his dedication and expertise in our industry. He has a proven track record of driving growth and innovation in similar environments, which aligns perfectly with our mission at Liquid – to make life easier and more profitable for liquid food manufacturers. His strategic vision and deep understanding of the industry's challenges and opportunities makes him a invaluable addition to our team.
We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome you to the Liquid family, Bob! What drove you to join us as the new Executive Vice President?
Bob: I have known Liquid for over 5 years and since my initial meeting, I was very impressed by the people within Liquid. Everyone was always professional, very smart, easy to talk with, and could explain the issues with simplicity and clarity. Additionally, they always had a willingness to improve on whatever they were working on. It is this passion that makes Liquid Great!
"I have continually witnessed Liquid’s ability to solve any problem put in front of them.
Liquids ability to come up with an engineering redesign, combined with the speed to market is unmatched by anyone."
With your extensive experience in the Liquid Food industry, how do you envision bringing your expertise to benefit Liquid's clientele?
Bob: Having been on the “customer side” for almost 30 years, I can empathize with the challenges the customers face, and can show how they can leverage Liquid to improve their operations.It is this approach that will help explain why the customers need Liquid and how we can continually improve their operations.It will also help Liquid gain market share in every segment of the Liquid Ladder
Which are the key strengths, that you see, within the value proposition that Liquid offers to its customers?
Bob: I have continually witnessed Liquid’s ability to solve any problem put in front of them. Everything from batching, thermal processing, sanitation, preventative maintenance, engineering design and automation. More importantly, if there is need for a modification or customized solution, Liquids ability to come up with an engineering redesign, combined with the speed to market is unmatched by anyone.
Can you tell us one thing outside of work that you are passionate about?
Bob: Great, but difficult question to answer, since there are many things, but for me continuing to learn and improve myself, in whatever I have been interested in has been important. I think this is why I have always been attracted to and impressed by Liquid.
Finally, what message would you like to convey to Liquid's global team?
Bob: First, I am truly honored to be part of such a great team, and I look forward to meeting each one of you.As I progress in my career, I have really enjoyed leadership and mentoring people to help them achieve their goals and grow their careers.As we move forward, if I can be of help to anyone, please do not hesitate to ask.Thank you, Bob.
