From thermoforming to a green MBA, and now maybe back again
Many in the plastics industry, and especially within the thermoforming community, know Conor Carlin. He worked with Sencorp Systems and then Stopol, but left the industry to get his MBA, focusing on sustainable business and technology management. Conor never did cut his plastics industry ties as for years he has been the managing editor of the SPE's Thermoforming Quarterly.
Conor's back in the working world as a manager at Enterprise Energy Intelligence at EnerNOC Inc., a position that likely will give him ample opportunities to revisit his plastics and manufacturing roots. His story was picked up by the Reuters newswire here. The grammatical errors in the article make me cringe but it was interesting to hear Conor's thoughts on sustainability and his inspiration for getting his MBA.
