General Manager | Commissary Connect
Commissary Connect is a shared-use food processing network powered by patent-pending technology to accelerate local food entrepreneurs. Susan’s work at Commissary Connect enabled further development of Commissary Connect’s patent pending technology. Working directly with the in-house development team, she provides the framework, priorities, and a real-life operations perspective to ensure an effective software and hardware solution that works in real life. Collaboration with and considering the needs of all local food stakeholders guides Susan’s decisions and feedback for the development team.
Susan’s career is one of 20 years progressive growth in Supply Chain, Operations, Customer Service and Project Management. After earning a B.Sc at the University of Victoria and an MBA at McMaster University, she went on to work for contract manufacturers in multi-industries. Working directly with such clients such as Lucent, Cummins, GM, Honda, Toyota, Vega, and Arbonne, Susan proved herself a hands-on leader with a track record of building teams to achieve outstanding success. This work has informed her guidance to Commissary Connect’s entrepreneur members – providing pragmatic operational advice and support.
Susan believes technology is an effective tool only when user needs and interface are considered as a priority. She is excited to be working with Commissary Connect to build a multi-faceted, user-focused and unique technology solution for any food processing facility – creating networks across BC and Canada.
