Tsurumi Pump announces Michelle Ciric as its new operations manager for North America. Ciric comes to Tsurumi with ten years of experience in distribution, warehouse, and supply chain operations. She also has considerable experience in managing staff which will add tremendous help as Tsurumi is at a time of fast growth and expansion.

“As I got to know the Tsurumi team through the interview process, I was immediately attracted to the culture and positive energy of who are now my coworkers,” Ciric says. “I felt the work environment was open to new ideas and that would allow me to use my experience to flourish in this role.”

Ciric developed her warehouse management and supply chain knowledge in previous roles by working closely with sales, operations, customer service, and logistics teams. Her past efforts focused on creating standard work, shortening communication flows, improving warehouse architecture, material flow, and continuous improvement of order execution to drive on-time deliveries.

Glenn Wieczorek, Tsurumi America’s managing director, adds “Michelle will strengthen the company’s team and boost its stock availability and delivery times.”
