Lorena Abarca
Executive VP   

(213) 444-3102 
 
Lorena has been in the Production and Operations field for 8 years. She’s worked in a variety of industries that have helped her develop her own unique style of management. 

She began her career in the Cigar Industry at a fast-growing company that challenged her ways of problem solving and management. She has been successful in implementing numerous new procedures and policies. She streamed-lined many functions and dramatically decreased overhead cost while never having it affect the quality of work being done.

Currently, she is in Los Angeles, where she is working as a Production Manager for Hourglass Cosmetics, a luxury cosmetics company. Simultaneously, she is pursuing her CPIM certification and is enrolled in the APICS MRP study course. By the end of 2013, she will be CPIM certified. She is progressively building her credentials in order to become a vital competitor in her field.
