Guest Host:

Tawny Alvarez
Partner
Verrill Dana

Tawny is a partner in Verrill Dana’s labor and employment practice group. She believes that a company’s culture defines its business and prides herself on assisting clients comply with the law, while simultaneously creating an amazing place to work.

Tawny centers her practice on the understanding that the employment landscape is ever-changing and that many organizations do not have the time or resources to keep abreast of all of these changes—from medical (and recreational) marijuana’s effect on drug testing, to the effect of social networking in the workplace and mobile devices’ effect on wage and hour issues. In this evolving landscape, she recognizes that for companies to remain profitable and successful they must be proactive, as opposed to reactive, to these employment issues.

Guest:

Robin Goodwin, CEO
Montalvo

Robin’s 38-year career has been almost exclusively in manufacturing, from very large companies such as Digital Equipment and Fairchild Semiconductor to small family-owned companies like The Montalvo Corporation in Gorham, where he’s been their CEO since 2013.

While he started out in Finance, he has spent the majority of his career in operations, manufacturing and supply chain management.  He has extensive international experience, managing factories and organizations throughout Asia and Europe.

Robin is also Board Chair for the Manufacturers Association of Maine, working with manufacturers large and small on meeting the challenges common to the industry, from workforce development to strategic growth.
