On today’s show, we speak with two individuals who have their hands all over one our favorite topics. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Steven Tamasi and Maureen Carruthers and gaining an inside view of the National Robotics League (NRL).

Steven Tamasi is CEO of Boston Centerless, located in Woburn, MA. He is a second generation entrepreneur with a passion for business who understands the power of operational excellence. Managing a culture shift to lean manufacturing has resulted in a World Class Manufacturing operation and led to winning the 2006 Northeast Shingo Prize Silver Medal.

Maureen Carruthers brings over 10 years nonprofit experience to her role as Program Director of the National Robotics League (NRL), a program of the National Tooling and MachiningAssociation(NTMA). As a relative newcomer to the manufacturing industry, Maureen’s “outsider” perspective helps her shape the messaging and programing of the NRL to attract students and parents who might not otherwise consider manufacturing a viable career option.
