Over Four Decades of EMS Industry Expertise

PMCI Principal Susan Mucha helped develop and now teaches the majority of the online IPC EMS Program Management Certification Training Program and her book, Find It. Book It. Grow It. A Robust Process for Account Acquisition in Electronics Manufacturing Services, is listed as a supplemental course material in the syllabus.

Prior to founding PMCI, Ms. Mucha spent over 20 years working for EMS companies in marketing and sales management positions. Her last corporate position was as a vice president and corporate officer of then NASDAQ-traded Elamex S.A. de C.V. In 1994, she was the recipient of the IPC's President's Award for her work in supporting IPC's Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry (EMSI) Council, which included developing the branding campaign which changed the industry from board stuffers to EMS providers. She has also won regional and international awards for marketing programs implemented at two of her former EMS employers.

She holds an M.A.S. degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a B.S. degree in journalism from the University of Florida. She is a Certified Manager through the Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) and an Accredited Business Communicator through the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). In addition to her consulting activities, she has taught undergraduate management, leadership, strategic planning and marketing courses at the University of Phoenix and leadership and strategic planning courses in Webster University's MBA program.

We Understand the Challenges of "Selling" Manufacturing

Clients can be assured that PMCI consultants and associated team members working on their projects have relevant experience with manufacturing services companies. Our goal is to rapidly address your needs with tested processes at a competitive cost.

Clients choose PMCI because we understand the challenges of marketing and selling manufacturing services, while more generically-focused consultants and marketing firms typically need to be educated.

PMCI further differentiates itself by providing the roadmap behind its approach to recommendations. Book It. Grow It. A Robust Process for Account Acquisition in Electronics Manufacturing Services is the first book to thoroughly outline key elements in EMS marketing, sales and account relationship management.
