The Professional Biography of Marvin Mackey

Successful companies need individuals with versatile skill sets that can roll up their sleeves and keep costs down.

I am a high technology veteran with U.S. and Asia Pacific operations experience combining operations, quality, manufacturability and support.  Most recently I was the Director of Operations for Atrua Technologies, a silicone based Fingerprint Sensor manufacturer with production in Taiwan.  Prior to that, I was Sr. Director of Advanced Manufacturing for Xircom, a half billion-dollar global wired and wireless mobile connectivity company with production in Malaysia.  I also have an extensive background in technical service and support operations.

By leveraging my diverse mix of management experience, I understand the complexities of working with cross-functional groups to achieve challenging business objectives.

I am a passionate problem solver with an emphasis on process development.  As an example of my organizational abilities, I was selected by the COO at Xircom to organize, build and manage a new strategic organization tasked with ensuring product manufacturability, knowing the majority of my background and technical expertise at the time was in service and support and outside of operations and engineering.

This 120 person team successfully reduced the roll-out window for a diverse family of products whose critical launch dates provided Xircom with a key competitive advantage.  The global, cross-functional responsibilities included mechanical design and development – PCB layout – packaging – compliance, component, test and manufacturing engineering – pre-production materials – data control – system test – quality and failure analysis.  Other accomplishments included project management for the mechanical development of RealPort, a patented, award winning flagship product.  I initiated the use of refurbished product as warranty replacements, producing annual savings of over $ 4M and structured, organized and built Xircom’s award winning technical support team, providing a pivotal differentiator that established Xircom as the global market share leader in mobile connectivity. Additionally, I developed a Western Regional service business for Square D (a Group Schneider company).

An avid diver, mountain biker and snow skier, I organized annual company white water rafting and ski trips as well as weekly mountain bike rides as a means to foster team work and cooperation.  I also made extensive use of team building off-sites, brainstorming sessions and annual departmental conferences to further forge strong relationships and improve communication.

My personal and professional development was enhanced through management programs at Stanford University’s Executive Institute, the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and the AMA.
