Rosette Gillan Named a Delaware Business Times '2019 DBT 40' Award Winner

Rosette GillanI am delighted to announce that Rosette Gillan, Organizational Development & Continuous Improvement Leader at our Delaware Manufacturing Center, has been selected as a Delaware Business Times ‘2019 DBT 40’ winner. DBT 40 finds and awards the region’s best and brightest young professionals, all under the age of 40, who demonstrate innovation, business excellence, and community involvement. I cannot think of another more deserving recipient than Rosette, who continuously embodies these requirements.

Five years ago, Rosette started at Bloom as a Process Engineer and has since grown into a position that exemplifies her skillsets as a natural leader. Today, she leads our development training programs and collaborates with all levels of the organization to establish and implement lean culture at our Delaware facilities.

As a woman and minority in manufacturing, Rosette is an active supporter of inclusiveness. With Bloom Women’s Leadership Initiative (BWLI) as a platform, she participates in community outreach programs to create opportunities for people (especially young girls) to learn about manufacturing and STEM careers. This includes collaborating with teachers at Newark Charter and Colonial School District, participating in career fairs, as well as hosting student events and tours at Bloom. Her enthusiasm for inspiring personal development doesn’t stop at Bloom. Rosette also dedicates time to sharing her knowledge with the local community, such as being a professional mentor with educational institutions, like Jobs for Delaware Grads, to help update their curriculum.

Bloom shares Rosette’s dedication to support ongoing educational opportunities, which is a major factor that keeps our manufacturing team’s skills at the leading edge. That’s why we are proud to partner with University of Delaware’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies, “Leading a Lean Culture: Advanced Problem-Solving for the 21st Century” program. Leveraging intelligence and experience from our talented workforce, including Rosette’s expertise in developing highly effective lean training programs, we will train local business professionals to be the next leaders in making the region more globally competitive.

I am proud to support and share Rosette’s outstanding accomplishments as she continues to improve Bloom’s lean manufacturing culture and inspire youth in the Delaware community. With passionate people like Rosette, I believe Delaware will continue to be a leader in developing a manufacturing workforce with the skills needed for 21st-century advanced manufacturing.
