Windward Design Group Appoints Steven Swartz Vice President Of Manufacturing

Windward Design Group, manufacturer of outdoor furniture since 1990, has hired Steven Swartz as vice president of manufacturing. Swartz has spent his entire career in manufacturing, with a broad range of tangible experience in make-to-order manufacturing, process control, global supply- chain management, quality assurance, just-in-time inventory control, product development, lean manufacturing, and personnel management.

Swartz has more than 30 years of experience in the casual-furniture industry, having worked his way up the ladder from the shop floor to an executive position at Tropitone®. During the past 10 years, he served as its vice president of manufacturing. He went full time at Windward in April, after consulting with the company on manufacturing operations for five months.

In this newly created position, Swartz is responsible for the general management of all phases of production operations, including purchasing, production scheduling, production, quality control, shipping, maintenance, and warehousing. He will be working closely with all departments to increase productivity and profitability within manufacturing operations.

Carrie Morales, executive vice president of Windward, says, “In the short time Steve has been with Windward, he has offered tremendous insight. He has already proven to be a sound investment to help us get to the next level.”
