30 Under 30: Recognizing the Future Leaders of Manufacturing

Maeve Guilfoyle, whom the SID participants met during the SID Congress, is one of the 30 under 30 when Manufacturing Engineering are presenting the Future Leaders of Manufacturing 2018.

Maeve Guilfoyle: I feel very humble for being selected. I’m one of 8 women and the only person selected outside north America and Canada.

Maeve Guilfoyle made the unlikely transition from music to manufacturing. “Since I was 12 years old,” said Guilfoyle, “music was all I wanted to do.” Her attitude changed once she began taking college music courses. The classwork was too freeform and ill-suited to the way Guilfoyle learns.
