MSED Monthly Meeting
"Fireside Chat" with
President & CEO of Shiloh Industries
Thursday, December 6, 2018
5:00 - 8:00 pm
Craft Breww City
27843 Orchard Lake Rd | Farmington Hills, MI 48334
Join us for the latest in our popular Fireside Chat Series, presenting an intimate look at local business leaders and how they achieve world-class results.
On December 6, 2018, Ramzi Hermiz, President and CEO of Shiloh Industries, will share the story of steady growth experienced by the automotive supplier under his leadership and vision.
Hermiz’ leadership style is one of honesty, transparency and communication. He encourages leaders to step out of their comfort zone, soliciting and providing all manner of feedback at all stages and levels and to exceed expectations whenever possible.
As a result of Hermiz’ leadership and commitment to the environment, not only has Shiloh grown from a regional supplier to a $1 billion global player, it has strengthened its commitment as a steward of the earth. Conservation of the global environment is evident through Shiloh’s many landfill-free facilities, as well as its drive to positively affect the environmental impact of Shiloh’s products and processes through improved fuel economy, reduced greenhouse gases and increased recyclability.
MSED board member, Jim Nader, will moderate this peek at Shiloh and its charismatic leader, current chairman of the board of the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) and the Automotive Hall of Fame. Hermiz also is on the Board of Trustees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In the past, the MSED Fireside Chat Series has featured Joseph Anderson of TAG Holdings, Steve Miller of Delphi, Steve Kiefer of General Motors, Carl Camden of Kelly Services, and most recently Matt Simoncini of Lear.
