Southall Earns Certification

Sheila Southall, Pre-Press & Print Innovation coordinator, McClung Companies, has earned her Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification. It was presented to her in a company meeting by representatives from Hollister Incorporated, through whom McClung partnered for the certification.

Six Sigma training teaches a rigorous application of practical, proven quality management principles that provide the tools, techniques, resources, culture, and business focus needed to maximize customer value. This is done by delivering outstanding quality consistently and by reducing operational costs through the elimination of waste and improving efficiencies.

“With this recognition, McClung becomes the first, certified Green Belt supplier for Hollister Incorporated,” said John Huff, Supply Chain Planning Leader for Hollister. “For more than ten years, we’ve applied the Six Sigma principles of total process improvement with great results.  Having a supplier partner like McClung champion the same approach only strengthens our efforts and our opportunities for continuous improvement.”

Sheila is the daughter of Johnnie and Patsy Southall, of Farmville.
