As the leader for quality across the entire organization, O’Connor will work collaboratively with Web’s operations and quality managers to establish a quality vision and strategy based on a prevention-centred approach. He will support the company’s employee-owners by providing them with the training, resources and tools to succeed. In the coming months, O’Conner will assess all of Web’s major facilities and evaluate the company’s current quality performance in order to further enhance Web’s quality management system. 

 “Achieving the highest quality standards is fundamental to Web’s business strategy and brand,” said Pihl. “As we evolve into a technology-driven company developing highly engineered solutions, Andy O’Connor will provide critical leadership. He will support the company’s initiative to embrace a prevention-based, rather than reactive, approach to quality.”   

Before joining Web, O’Connor held a series of increasingly responsible positions with Rolls-Royce Corporation focusing on corporate culture, continuous improvement and customer quality. Most recently, he was global director of quality, health, safety and environment, as well as business improvement for Rolls-Royce Naval Marine. O’Connor holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.
