Join Amy Peck, to learn from Michelle about the identity and work behind Stanley X and their outlook on their plan to be a key role player in the evolution of construction. Michelle has always been curious about how things move and work. From her days as a mechanical engineer and as a corporate executive, she's found tremendous value in taking things apart and reconfiguring them in innovative, optimized ways. Throughout Michelle's career, she's used that same curiosity and skill to deconstruct, examine the parts, test the functions, and put them back together. As a result, she's been able to transform under-performing organizations into highly successful ones, no matter the industry.

Highlights of Michelle's interview with host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR) include:

  • Michelle discusses some of the things that she's excited about in terms of leveraging technology
  • Discussion about the difficulty integrating frontier technology in the work that Stanley X is doing
  • Some of the technologies that Michelle thinks are really going to be transformative for the AEC industry
  • Notable companies that have experienced success in the Stanley X incubator

Michelle is an authentic leader who doesn't need to steal the show — but she will make her voice heard with her own point of view. She has a passion for building high-performing teams and the kind of open and transparent culture that supports them. Michelle works hard to develop each person on her team, some of whom have been with her in one way or another for over 10 years. As a corporate leader with a background in diverse industries and functions, she has experienced many aspects of businesses and their cycles. But each unique challenge demands the same outcome: to deliver its very best for the customer.
