Southco, a provider in engineered access hardware, congratulates Frazier Pruitt, Quality Assurance Supervisor at its Honeoye Falls, NY facility on being recognized as one of ASQ’s 40 under 40.
Every fifth year since 2011, Quality Progress, the official publication of American Society for Quality (ASQ) selects the best and brightest young and talented quality trailblazers who are pushing the boundaries and making a difference in quality processes.
Pruitt is an ASQ-certified Six Sigma Black Belt and quality engineer, voting member of U.S. Technical Advisory Group to International Organization for Standardization/ Technical Committee 176, and lean Six Sigma facilitator for Greater Rochester (NY) Quality Council.
He holds an MBA from Indiana University and the University of Manchester.
“My mission is to inspire and empower excellence in organizations like Southco through proactive quality and continuous improvement,” said Pruitt. “Over time, I have learned that the best way to do this is by inspiring and empowering people. By focusing on developing people, I create a greater impact and larger reach than I ever could on my own.”
Pruitt is featured in the November issue of Quality Progress’ World Quality Month edition. With nearly 80,000 individual and organizational members of the community in 130 countries, ASQ has the reputation and reach to bring together the diverse quality champions who are transforming the world’s corporations, organizations, and communities to meet tomorrow’s critical challenges.
