Meet Swede McGee. Swede is the President of Manufacturing for McGee Corporation. Swede was exposed to the family business at the age of 12. He recalls being tasked with a tedious job that challenged him to become an innovative visionary and to improve an existing process. At such a young age, he was able to understand the value of continuous improvement and therefore developed an early passion for implementing improved practices within the company.
He attributes his drive for organization to many of the values that he was taught while growing up. His parents encouraged sibling competitions when it came to keeping clean and organized spaces within their home. Today, Swede is thankful for those learning opportunities and has applied his passion for organization and continuous improvement to implementing many quality-driven and efficient work processes within the company.
Swede officially joined the company in May of 1995 after graduating from Wingate University with a degree in Business Management. Over the years, he has enhanced his education in the areas of Six Sigma Lean Leadership, Manufacturing & Software Technologies, and Waste Reduction. He always pushes hard to learn something new each day.
Swede considers himself to be an open-minded leader who has a passion for productivity. He enjoys seeing the success of our McGee team members and encourages a culture of continuously sharing knowledge to promote employee success.
When not at work, you may find Swede deep sea fishing, trail riding, or enjoying a social gathering with family and friends. He describes music as one of his passions. Swede has the talent to sing and McGee employees enjoy hearing a few of his songs at McGee company gatherings.
