GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Crestcom International, LLC is pleased to announce one of its newest additions: Raquel Chole. She joins the Crestcom network as an authorized Crestcom licensee, President of Global Leadership Resources, delivering leadership development programs in the Chicago Metropolitan Area.
Raquel’s passion for leadership development originates from her background in global business development for an automotive component maker serving all major car producers, including Ford, VW, GM, Nissan, SAIC, Adient, and Toyota. It was through her work in automotive that she received the honor of being named one of the most influential women in American manufacturing by the National Association of Manufacturers and earned the Minority Supplier Development award from Johnson Controls.
Hired as an agent of change for her company, Raquel was responsible for growing the automotive segment of the business from 3% to 60% of sales and had a leading role in establishing manufacturing plants in Mexico and China, as well as exploring Eastern European options. With the Chairman of the Board, she created and managed development programs for women employees of the company. In partnership with the Michigan Minority Council, Toyota and Johnson Controls, she served as a corporate mentor and business development champion for minority businesses seeking to serve the automotive supply chain.
