2020-2030 Editorial Advisory Board: Meet New Board Member Camille M. Sackett
Camille M. Sackett, director of Business Development & Engineering Support for Accede Mold & Tool in Rochester, New York, is one of MMT’s new editorial advisory board members.
Camille Sackett comes to MoldMaking Technology’s Editorial Advisory Board as an engineering, sales, marketing and business development professional. We recognized Camille in May 2017 as part of our series on Women Impacting Moldmaking. She is the director of Business Development & Engineering Support for Accede Mold & Tool in Rochester, New York.
Camille works on day-to-day sales and client-relationship management, tracking new markets and emerging trends and proposing and developing new strategic partnerships to meet short- and long-term objectives in order to reach business needs and requirements. More specifically, she quotes new projects, meets new and potential customers, manages the website and social media and exhibits at trade shows and conferences.
As an avid life-long learner, she is currently working on a combined Bachelor’s/Master’s of Business Administration in business management degree with the State University of New York Empire State College. She studied manufacturing engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology and Monroe Community College and earned degrees in engineering science and mechanical engineering technology. Camille is also an active member of PLASTICS, SPE and RTMA.
Camille started as an apprentice mold designer at Accede in 1993. She completed a six-year program to become a senior mold designer and program manager. Other roles at Accede have included second-shift engineering manager, ISO/QS lead auditor and QS management rep.
With Camille’s participation in the EAB, we also get the expertise of the Accede team on operations, manufacturing, engineering, quality, mold sampling and facility safety and maintenance.
Established in 1981, Accede is an ISO 9001-certified, ITAR-registered, U.S. mold builder taking on the most demanding mold challenges including high cavitation, stack, in-mold close, unscrewing and multi-shot with a broad mix of two-shot technologies including SpinStack and servo solutions. The shop offers turnkey systems integration, in-house sampling up to 720 tons, inspection, cleanroom, process validation and global customer support. Accede is privately held by the second-generation owner, Roger Fox, with a third-generation workforce.
With Camille’s participation in the EAB, we also get the expertise of the Accede team on operations, manufacturing, engineering, quality, mold sampling and facility safety and maintenance. Meanwhile, she has first-hand experience with design, sales and marketing, quality standards and organizational process development. As a woman in a primarily male-dominated field, she can also speak directly to her personal experiences working in the industry as a minority. Camille hopes to feel more connected to the industry by serving on MMT’s EAB.
She is a mom of three—two sons, 12 and 15, and one 17-year old daughter—and is active in their schools and sports teams/clubs, including baseball, wrestling and competitive cheerleading. Camille is an Audible addict and can’t get enough of audiobooks. Her family will testify that they have the “pleasure” of listening along to her books while she’s doing house chores and/or driving them to their events near or far.
