SHEFFIELD, Iowa — Emily Schmitt, Sukup Manufacturing Co. General Counsel, has been selected for the National Assn. of Manufacturers (NAM) Manufacturing Executive Leadership Program.

NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the United States and has held this leadership program annually for five years. The program focuses on developing essential strategic leadership and communication skills, advocacy, business acumen, and other topics for C-level executives in manufacturing. Only 30 participants are invited to attend, nationwide.

“I look forward to engaging with leaders from around the country in a wide variety of manufacturing segments and learning from their successes and challenges,” said Schmitt. “I also look forward to bringing the leadership and communication skills I develop back to Sheffield to make a positive impact at the company founded by my grandpa Eugene. I am very grateful to NAM for this exceptional opportunity for professional growth.”

Schmitt will participate in the program in Washington, D.C., from October 15 to 17, 2018, as well as ongoing leadership development throughout the year.
