Before launching®, Candis Jill Lipe worked for over 25 years supporting busy executives in Corporate
K10A6970 (2)America.  She was an Executive Assistant with extensive experience in office administration, business meeting and event planning including organizing  domestic and international travel.  She worked closely with some of the industry leaders of the semiconductor industry, life sciences and medical device companies. Some of these highly confidential projects worked on included  supporting executive business teams through complex mergers and acquisitions.

This career helped her grow personally and professionally by accepting assignments that would allow her to assume a wider range of responsibility. With a passion to seek ways to save time and become more efficient, she learned DFT through the JIT Institute and immediately found the methodology could be adapted to the office.  This specialized training helped her think differently about streamlining the workflow to develop greater office efficiency. She implemented processes on routine administrative tasks that ultimately helped exceed the corporate goals.

Corporate positions held: EA to the CEO, and to the functional areas of Operations, Engineering, Manufacturing, Global Materials, Services; Life Science and Chemical Analysis, Q.A./R.A. (Quality Assurance / Regulatory Affairs), Purchasing, Marketing and Sales, Finance and Human Resources.
