CBIA BizCast: New CMO Tackles Manufacturing Workforce
CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Paul Lavoie, the state’s new chief manufacturing officer. Lavoie took over the role this month following Colin Cooper’s retirement.
Lavoie spent the last 10 years at Carey Manufacturing, where his favorite part of the day was walking the shop floor talking to employees and watching products come to life.
He said one of his biggest regrets is not starting in the manufacturing industry earlier in his working life.
“I am passionate about manufacturing,” Lavoie says.
“I am passionate about the state of Connecticut. I want all manufacturers to succeed. I want our state to succeed.”
Lavoie has five key objectives as chief manufacturing officer: workforce development, fostering a healthy manufacturing ecosystem, establishing a culture of innovation, better communication and simplification.
