Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone with Kim Bowen, Specialty Cable Corp

Kim Bowen, Specialty Cable Corporation and Ari Santiago, CompassMSP

This week, we are joined by Kim Bowen, CEO of Specialty Cable Corporation, a cabling manufacturer specializing in wire that can withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures. Their wires are engineered and manufactured in all sizes from baby heart monitors to airplane power cables.


Kim and Ari talk about Kim's interesting background starting at a technical high school for electrician training, moving on to accounting roles and then becoming a Director of Manufacturing before finally taking on the role of CEO. 

Kim offers insights into the company's history, their successful methods for long-term employee retention, how to maintain relevance in an older market, and why leveraging technology is vital to small manufacturers.

We also learn the secret to a successful leadership transition.
