5 Questions with Supply Chain’s Emily Geer

Supply Chain Production Planner II Emily Geer remembers the first day she heard that Arthrex was planning to break ground on a new manufacturing facility in her hometown of Sandy Springs, South Carolina. 

“I was so excited,” said Emily. “I watched construction progress every day as I passed it on my way home, and one night I told my husband, ‘I’m going to work there.’”

Emily’s goal became a reality when she joined the Arthrex Manufacturing Inc. South Carolina (AMISC) team in May 2019. Since then, she’s developed new skills, shared meaningful moments with coworkers and helped deliver AMISC’s first saleable product.

What does a typical day at Arthrex look like for you?

When I get into the office, the first thing I do is work on a recovery plan for our customers for any items that may be on our Backorder Report. My mornings are busy working with our European suppliers to resolve any obstacles and short-term performance problems that could cause a disruption in the flow of finished goods or inventory. In the afternoons, I work on new product development activities with the engineering group at ACT. Between all of this, we focus on activities that fall into one of the Big 5 of Supply Chain: Cost Reduction and Cost Avoidance, Backorder Management, Supplier Performance Management, Inventory Performance Management and Forecast Performance Management.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

It’s dynamic, challenging and you are always in the process of learning. Supply Chain is definitely a team effort, and everyone in this group brings unique experience and ideas to the table. For me, it’s an honor and a privilege being surrounded by so many talented minds, and working alongside them to ensure that we bring ideas to life and work toward the common goal of Making People Better.

What has been a highlight during your time at Arthrex?

Over the past 9.5 years, I have had the opportunities to support the Shoulder team, Capital Products team and Vet team in launching many wonderful products that made a difference in the quality of lives, including the 4K endoscopes and a variety of screws and plates.

In the early stages of my career, my peers and leadership quickly noticed that I was passionate about building and strengthening our Supplier Relationship Management process. I was given the opportunity to work on improving the delivery performance of our suppliers, and have since been able to expand the program to include our top 120 suppliers, across five Arthrex divisions with South Carolina to be added as the sixth. Throughout this process, I have also led our Arthrex Supplier Improvement.

Through it all, I have been grateful to have mentors like [Supply Chain Senior Director] Pete Russano who has put the wind at my back and had confidence in me.

Our core value is Making People Better. How has Arthrex made you better?

Arthrex has made me better in several ways. It has given me the opportunity to work on things I feel passionate about. I have had the opportunity to obtain more education through the tuition reimbursement program, which helped me earn my MBA at Florida Gulf Coast University, additional training and participate in community programs like the Growing Associates in Naples (GAIN) program through the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. Arthrex has also given me the opportunity to get involved in the community through the program that allows us to volunteer with various charities.

What do you do in your downtime?

My wife and I have a 3-year-old son and a 6-month-old daughter who keep us very busy and entertained at home. Every day, my 3-year-old son and I play soccer and go on walks through our community. In addition to coaching my son’s soccer team, I also play competitive soccer here locally. I love to travel and meet people from cultures and backgrounds that are different from my own. On the weekends, we spend time together as a family, enjoy home-cooked meals and check in on my grandparents back in Bosnia. Since I am approaching my 10-year anniversary with Arthrex, we are spending much of our time anticipating our next Trip of a Lifetime getaway. We’re thinking Montana.

What does a typical day at Arthrex look like for you?

I start my days by meeting with members of other departments to touch base on production. I review the demand, then schedule production orders for saleable product across our CNC area, Clean Room 1, Clean Room 2 and nonsterile screws. I follow up on released product orders to ensure they are getting to the Arthrex Logistics Center (ALC) for shipping in a timely manner. I work with the validation team and manufacturing engineers to release validation orders or engineering studies for new machines and products. I also analyze the capacity of our machines and labor needed, not only for current demand, but future demand.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I love the problem-solving aspect. Since Arthrex Manufacturing Inc. South Carolina (AMISC) just opened last year and not everything on our manufacturing floor is set up exactly the same way as Arthrex Manufacturing Inc. East (AMIE), Arthrex’s manufacturing facility in Ave Maria, Florida, we work together often to find creative solutions to work well with our system. Sometimes that means varying the scheduling of operating different machines or bringing in more product than originally planned. 

Working in scheduling means I get to work with people from all departments. It’s a very collaborative environment. Between that and knowing that I’m part of a company that makes a difference in people’s lives, there are too many things I enjoy to pick just one! 

What has been a highlight during your time at Arthrex?

It’s difficult to narrow it down to one highlight, as there have been so many. Our first shipment of saleable product was truly a highlight. Working with multiple departments, we were able to schedule and validate all the necessary machines and processes that led to the ultimate result of our first saleable shipment to the Arthrex Logistics Center in Fort Myers, Florida.

Our core value is Making People Better. How has Arthrex made you better?

I’ve been made better during my time here by growing outside of my comfort zone. I was used to strictly scheduling production lines, but now, I have developed my critical thinking and problem-solving skills through working with the multiple teams here. I’ve strengthened my knowledge in SAP and worked with validation and quality engineers and even the operations department on different tasks. I’ve also established great working relationships and friendships with many coworkers thanks to the environment Arthrex provides.

What do you do in your downtime?

Prior to current conditions, my husband and I enjoyed live music and sporting events, especially Clemson football! Since events have been cancelled due to the pandemic, I started a garden from which my husband and I have enjoyed cucumbers, tomatoes and corn. We are excited to harvest peppers and carrots next! 

I also coach a girls’ club soccer team that has recently resumed practicing. I played, years ago, at the same club I’m coaching for now and continued through college. It’s always been a big part of my life, so even though I can’t play how I used to, I love to still be involved.
