OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR

Mr. Maddox's hands-on
approach and technical
expertise make him a key
leader in The Bakery Cos.

we'd make more; if not, it got replaced. The business at
The Bakery Cos. is more of a 'pull.' We go through a custom commercialization approach that encourages our
customers to express exactly what they're looking for and
allows us to go to market with exactly what they want in
the fastest way possible. We're a solutions provider."
For example, Mr. Maddox has worked not only on
new product development but also packaging initiatives
that evolved out of customer ideation sessions.
His experience at The Bakery Cos. has been diverse,
mostly because it's operated as a lean company ... but
all that could change. The company is on the cusp
of growth through a recent partnership with Arbor
Investments, a leader in food private equity, and bakery veterans George and Yianny Caparos. Lucky for
everyone, Mr. Maddox doesn't shy away from a good
challenge. "I'm not afraid of new opportunities," he

said, noting that his experience in manufacturing,
engineering, product development and continuous
improvement will lend itself well to streamlining the
transition. "I love to be in the thick of things and develop solutions so I can help define new processes,
practices and workflows. And when we're in that
steady state, I can really drive improvement."
His willingness to take chances and diversify his experience has been a game changer for The Bakery Cos.
And as the newly restructured company plans for exponential growth over the next several years, Mr. Maddox's
technical expertise will be key. "We're going to have
a bigger company, and he's playing a role in that," Ms.
Harrington said. "His strengths are highly technical, and
his contributions, dedication and smart, thoughtful approach are invaluable."
Those kinds of contributions start by being open
to the possibilities. "Marshall took a huge leap of faith
when he left a powerful position to come work for our
little company, and I will always be grateful for that,"
she said.

Leave nothing to chance
While Mr. Maddox is no stranger to good luck, when
it comes to running a tight bakery operation, he's not
much of a betting man.
He sees opportunities for improvement in every aspect of the process, and his engineering background
has provided an analytical approach to the work. "I've
had to learn many of the baking metrics that in the
beginning seemed a little foreign to me," he said. "But
as I got into it - studied and understood what the
metrics do - it's come together."
Before many lean manufacturing terms were
coined, there was the Deming approach, the quality
improvement standard defined by noted American
engineer W. Edwards Deming. Since his early days in
the industry, Mr. Maddox was a "Deming disciple,"
having practiced these principles. Throughout his career, he has coupled the Deming approach with modern lean manufacturing tools to develop an operational standard that focuses on reliability, consistency
and predictability.
"The terms have a lot of meaning behind them,"
he emphasized. "We use them in determining overall equipment effectiveness, or OEE, and to define
quality in our OEE calculations. If you don't make a
product right the first time and have to throw it away,
that's a big quality problem and also a big hit to your
OEE. And waste is an element of OEE as well."
For Mr. Maddox, reliability, consistency and predictability are the most important elements of the
OEE metric. "It's the best way to define how efficient
