Mark Lariviere left the Marine Corps as a corporal. While in the service, he refueled jets and helicopters. Now, he is a production manager for E&E – he oversees the daily activities of the manufacturing and tooling operations. E&E has recognized him for Outstanding Job Performance for the first quarter of 2009, granted him a Five Year Award, and promoted him from tool room supervisor to production manager.

E&E is a stamping manufacturer. It supplies more than 40 customers on four continents, designing and manufacturing structures and frames for wheeled vehicles in the military, commercial, and industrial markets. E&E offers design, engineering, product development, and assembly analysis.

Lariviere understands that his time in the military helped make him and the company a success. “During my time the Marine Corps, I went through the rapid maturing process that has shaped me into the man I am today,” he said. “I was given great responsibility, and failure was not an option. I learned how to work as a member of a larger team, knowing that I needed to do my job to the best of my ability.”

The structure the military brought to his life played a big role. “The discipline I learned helped me take on leadership roles as a civilian,” Lariviere said. “I would highly recommend that young men and women get the experience of serving this great nation. The pride and skill set will speak volumes in an interview and the way you carry yourself.”
