Seraph is excited to announce the launch of our latest initiative, the “Manufacturing Excellence Leadership Program.”
This program marks an exciting expansion of the Seraph Operational Excellence Awards (award applications opening December 2023 for the 2024 awards program). The “Manufacturing Excellence Leadership Program” is designed for students aspiring to pursue careers in manufacturing who wish to explore the automotive industry’s offerings.
“Our aim is to nurture the next generation of manufacturing and operational excellence leaders through an immersive, hands-on externship experience that exposes students to top operational companies.”
Thomas Kowal, President of North America
We welcome applications from:
Students who are studying manufacturing, industrial engineering, supply-chain and/or operations management.
- University undergraduates in their sophomore, junior or senior year. *
- Seniors in technical high schools. *
*Applicants must reside within the United States.
What to Expect:
We will select four (4) winning students for the “Manufacturing Excellence Leadership Program.” Each recipient will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to one of the on-site plant assessments conducted within the United States by the Seraph team for the Operational Excellence Awards. The assessment will give our winning students an up close and personal experience in shadowing the Seraph team, while we are conducting a plant assessment to determine the health of the organization across operations, logistics, quality, and human resources.
This is a unique opportunity that will provide students with an opportunity to learn from operational consultants that have tremendous expertise in manufacturing. Students will gain an inside perspective of a plant’s operations and the components that make up the health of an organization’s processes.
In addition, each student will be awarded $1,000 scholarship from Seraph.

All recipients of the Manufacturing Excellence Leadership Program will join the gala as our guests. This evening will provide the opportunity to mingle with some of the top industry experts from across North America.
Meet and Greet with our CEO or President of North America
Each selected student candidate will have the opportunity to engage in a one-on-one discussion via Teams with either Ambrose Conroy, our CEO, or Thomas Kowal, our President of North America. This is a unique chance for you to connect with individuals who are passionate about giving back to the industry. Students can look forward to sharing stories and discussing their future with them.
