Lisa Witte — vice-president/general manager of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s portable analytical instruments business (Massachusetts, USA) — has received a Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) award from the Manufacturing Institute/Deloitte, the University of Phoenix and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

The STEP awards were created as part of the STEP Ahead initiative launched by the Manufacturing Institute and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers to promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry. Witte joins 121 other women representing all levels in manufacturing for excellence and leadership.

Witte graduated from The College of William and Mary (Virginia, USA) with a degree in biology, and has nearly three decades of experience in manufacturing including senior sales, operations and management positions at companies such as Baxter Healthcare, Promega Corporation, and Fisher Scientific. She joined Thermo Fisher Scientific in 2009, and is now vice-president/general manager of the company’s portable analytical instruments business.

“The path ahead for women in manufacturing is paved with opportunity, and it’s our responsibility to lead the way for future generations,” said Lisa Witte. “As the world leader in serving science, we’re in a unique position to champion STEP advancement, not just for women but for all aspiring scientists and manufacturing leaders who see awards like this as proof that an exciting future awaits them.”
