After 16 years at the power tool group Stanley Black & Decker (New Britain, Connecticut / USA) – most recently as Vice President and Global Procurement Officer – Carole Phillips will become Head of Purchasing at the mechanical engineering group Hillenbrand (Batesville, Indiana / USA) at the beginning of 2023. Predecessor Mike Prado, who has trained her since September 2022, is retiring.

Phillips aims to make the machine builder, with well-known companies such as Milacron, Mold Masters, Coperion and Herbold Meckesheim, less vulnerable to disruptions in the value chain such as those that occurred during the corona pandemic.
