DIRECTOR AFTER-MARKET CUSTOMER SERVICE, Corporate Headquarters
Jilliane Flint started with us in 2008 as a Production Supervisor in our Simi Valley, California manufacturing and sales facility. Later that year, she moved into a new role as Service & Quality Manager. With a background in engineering, she had always leaned towards problem-solving, so in June, 2014, she transitioned to a Continuous Improvement Manager position. With years of experience in customer service, quality, and continuous improvement she was able to continue to grow and was subsequently promoted to Director of After Market Service in January, 2016. When she isn’t working she enjoys spending time with her family of five. She also has a penchant for event planning on special occasions.
Jilliane says, “After several years in the plastic packaging industry, I wanted to work for an industry that would provide challenge as well as continued growth. Milgard provided a unique opportunity to grow my career while enabling me to grow others under a positive and supportive value system.
“I love being able to look for new ways to enhance our customers' experience. Whether it is through new technology, systems, or team development, I get to focus on what is the most important part of our company: The customer.”
