Parker Global

Team Member Spotlight: Jessica Mayhew, Division Sourcing Manager

Jessica Mayhew, Division Sourcing ManagerNoted as a “Heavy Metal Superstar,” Mayhew has been recognized by Thomasnet and the Institute for Supply Chain Management on their 30 under 30 list of Supply Chain Stars.

Jessica Mayhew joined Parker in August 2014 as a Strategic Sourcing Manager. She had set her sights early on a career in supply chain management after listening to her uncle describe his job in the field. She attended Penn State, one of the leading universities for supply chain studies, and recognizing global opportunities, she minored in Mandarin. After graduating, she even worked with a tutor to gain fluency, a skill that has proven to be a remarkable advantage in localization efforts and negotiations.

For example, Mayhew helped locate and is working to develop a relationship with a new grey and ductile iron foundry in Mexico to support Parker’s long-term source strategies, hence the title of “Heavy Metal Superstar,” designated by the competition’s sponsors. She also exceeded savings expectations on complex castings by implementing an alternate casting technology at the division.  

“I want to keep developing my career at Parker. I want to help find ways to make our supply chain part of the strategic advantage of our company and continue to learn new things and face new challenges,” offered Mayhew.

She enjoys working with different cross functional teams to balance priorities and work toward common goals. Considering how her role impacts Parker's Win Strategy goals, she described how strategic supply chain decisions are linked to engaging people in support our customers’ needs.

“I don't think there is any secrete sauce to being successful at Parker vs. other companies – work hard, be fair, be respectful of others, and always assume positive intent with any situation,” reflects Mayhew.

Actively involved in both the Institute of Supply Management and the American Foundry Society, Mayhew values learning and benchmarking opportunities, as well as networking to find new suppliers.

Congratulations Jessica!
