About CMMA


Harry Leaver, Executive Director


As we begin 2016, the CMMA Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Harry Leaver has been hired as Director of CMMA.  We know that his experience will help us to take CMMA to the next level in serving our manufacturing membership, helping to make them more successful and advancing manufacturing in general in our community.  Mr. Leaver was the Executive Director of the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center which operates in collaboration with Saginaw Valley State University.  Prior to that, he ran a number of manufacturing facilities, among them Cross Company and Ingersoll CM Systems.  His roots and his heart lie in manufacturing. 

Director Leaver has been given a tall order!  Some of the tasks on his plate include increasing membership; marketing regional manufacturing to our community—to families and youth, in particular, to promote career options in our area; educational collaboration curriculum with educational organizations, including MMCC, RESD and The Morey Foundation;  improving our website; putting out a quarterly newsletter; continuing our collaborative training activities with MMCC, MMTC and manufacturing member companies; and enhancing member services, such as informational presentations, coordinated purchases of services to help reduce costs, and employee training;  and facilitation of a collective voice in influencing issues impacting manufacturers.  We plan to keep Mr. Leaver very busy! 

This move would not be possible without the support of The Morey Foundation and Mid Michigan Community College.  The Morey Foundation has made a grant to assist in securing a director dedicated to promoting the CMMA, and MMCC is providing the office space, as well as technical and administrative support for Mr. Leaver.  We are very grateful and look forward to cultivating this mutually beneficial relationship with The Morey Foundation and MMCC.
