Tina Stevens

2ND VICE CHAIR

     

In 1997, Secondary Solutions CEO Tina Stevens saw solutions where others might have only seen problems. After carefully examining the processes and problems of modern manufacturing, Tina envisioned a company comprised of skilled, dedicated problem solvers that could step in and save the day—solving the many day to day challenges that manufacturers must face. Tina saw her company as one that offered “Secondary Solutions”, solutions that others could rely on when they faced errors and failures in product design, assembly and delivery. Since then, Secondary Solutions, Inc. has become one of the most successful oversight and problem-solving teams assembled, making SSI the first choice response team for some of the worlds most successful companies. Tina is proud that Secondary Solutions is not only a Certified ISO Company but one that is also a nationally-recognized Women’s Business Enterprise Network.
