Meet The Faces Of SWE 2018


We asked a few women who will be attending the Society of Women Engineers Conference on October 18-20th what their career development and progression experience has been like as a women engineer at our company. See what they had to say!

Cyndi Bray-McDaniel, Plant Manager, Global Integrated Supply Chain

I came to the company over 20 years ago as a manufacturing engineer.  Since that first job, I have held roles like production leader, manufacturing engineering leader, quality leader, operations leader, and now I am serving as a plant manager. My first plant manager role was with Thermo King in Hastings, NE.  My second plant manager role was with Trane Commercial in Pueblo, CO and now, I am the plant manager of our Residential HVAC site in Trenton, NJ with over 1100 employees producing furnaces and coils for our customers.  I’ve been able to hold numerous positions that have allowed me to learn and contribute in many ways.  I am thrilled with   the company and have always received strong support from my employees, my peers, and my leadership.  

Hillary Halstead Director, Engineering and Project Process Excellence


Our company has provided many opportunities for development throughout my 16 year career at the company including managing people and projects of increasing responsibility as well as the unique opportunity to work part time while my kids were young. In addition to professional development, I thoroughly enjoy being involved in a multitude of STEM outreach, sustainability, and Health Progress activities sponsored by the company.
