Jonathan’s love for the Manchester United football team had an influence on his passion for engineering. “Football and engineering both require a huge amount of time management, trial and error stages and the development of new ways for outdated practices.” While the relation of his two passions are evident, Jonathan’s tutor pointed out his talent for technology development and his interest and knowledge of science, early on. This led to his earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, and a Masters in Project Management.
Jonathan joined the European Graduate Program as a Logistics Engineer where he currently works with material procurement on our supply chain management team. “The biggest challenge I faced personally when I joined the program was the unfamiliarity I had in logistics. My mentor has been a huge support through this.” (Jonathan’s mentor is the Director of the European Supply Chain and originally began his career in Human Resources.) “He helped guide me through basic knowledge and reinforced Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ value of innovation.” With guidance from his mentor, Jonathan appreciates that our team is constantly stretching its creativity to push one another outside of our comfort zones.
