Mastercam Joins Workshops for Warriors Board
Tolland, CT – Meghan West, President of CNC Software, Inc., recently joined the Workshops for Warriors Board of Directors. Mrs. West will bring a new level of expertise and energy to the team, and Workshops for Warriors is excited to have her on board to keep their organization growing and at the cutting-edge of industry technology.
“This was a natural fit for me,” says West. “I am humbled to be a part of a group that is helping to solve two critical problems in our country. They are providing skilled workers into an industry that is starving for them; and they are creating a successful transition path for our veterans into civilian life. I feel a strong sense of responsibility to help with both initiatives, and could not be more proud to work with this group.”
West joined CNC Software, Inc. in 2009 and was named President in April, 2015. In 2014, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers named Mrs. West one of the “30 Under 30 Future Leaders of Manufacturing.”
Says Hernán Luis y Prado, founder of Workshops for Warriors, “Meghan West has dedicated much of her time towards the educational market and recruiting the next generation of men and women into the manufacturing industry, so she was a leader we knew we wanted on our team. To date, Workshops for Warriors students have earned a combined 127 nationally recognized Mastercam Certifications credentials, and we are looking forward to strengthening this partnership as we continue to align ourselves with the most powerful companies in the industry. We are honored to have Meghan as the newest addition to the Workshops for Warriors Board of Directors.”
