Title:CI Process Engineering Supervisor (30 years)
A Gem of a Career
Every company has its rock stars, those remarkable employees who help shape the organization's culture and success. Mike Leaman, a CI Process Engineering Supervisor at Fenner, is among them. Mike has been with the Fenner family of businesses for 30 years. He's held various positions throughout his career, and he is an accomplished mechanic, manufacturing leader and skilled problem-solver. These skills have paved the way to take on his current position as our CI Process Engineering Supervisor. In addition, he displays our primary core values and is a dedicated family man.
Mike started his career at Lumsden Corporation, an organization that was still a small family-run company in 1993. Over the years, he held diverse positions at Hoyt Wire Cloth, starting as a Helper/Learner on Shear & Brake in 1993. From there, he worked his way up to Maintenance Manager at Lumsden in 2012. That tenure at Hoyt proved instrumental to the trajectory of his career development. Mike trained on all production equipment. He also worked closely with engineering – designing and installing new equipment. His expertise in identifying and fixing mechanical issues, along with his urgency in addressing problems, has been invaluable to the company.
In 2020, Mike was a key player in relocating Wiremation from 10 Abraso St. to 1296 Loop Rd. His contribution to the move was vital for its success. In 2021, he was one of the key employees selected to help integrate Lumsden, demonstrating his versatility and experience in the industry. In 2022, Mike's role was expanded again, this time to support all Fenner product lines by leading the process engineering team. He obtained his Lean Certification and started learning about Michelin's approach to Predictive Maintenance. It’s this kind of dedication to continuous learning and professional development that continues to make him an essential asset to the Fenner family.
Mike's personal life is equally important. He grew up in Mountville and moved to Manor Township in 2010, where he lives with his wife Lori (who he’s known since elementary school) and their son Colton. Colton excels academically and is a gifted athlete, who especially enjoys basketball. Mike cherishes spending time with Lori and Colton, but his other passion is the outdoors. He’s an experienced rider who owned over 200 motorcycles, dirt bikes, and ATVs throughout his lifetime, and now owns a Yamaha RMAX4 1000 Side by Side for family outings through nature.
