Excel CEO Doug Parsons Featured in Radio Interview

Excel’s President and CEO, Doug Parsons, and Director of Human Resources, Steve Stewart, were recently interviewed on the Greg & Dan show (Peoria Illinois’ 1470 WMBD) because of Excel’s involvement in workforce development as a regional manufacturer. Greg & Dan chose the pair to discuss the importance of manufacturing in Central Illinois and in the United States overall. During the interview, these leaders highlighted the need for educated, highly-skilled workers in a new, modern manufacturing workplace. Parsons and Stewart also expressed the importance of educating the entire community about the diverse, viable career paths available in manufacturing.

Modern manufacturing provides a golden opportunity for economic growth in Central Illinois. Common stereotypes about manufacturing assume it is dark, monotonous, dead-end work, but most modern facilities are clean, safe environments that provide many paths for advancement and job satisfaction. Parsons and Stewart hope to help our community (and our nation) embrace a new era of manufacturing as a foundation for economic growth.
