MPM Consulting President, Marc A. Voorhees, Jr., was quoted in a Crain's Detroit Business article regarding Mayor Duggan's Project Lean initiative - Mr. Voorhees is leading the team reviewing Detroit Department of Transportation bus departure times. The print edition was published June 2, 2014 and the online version of the article is excerpted below:
Marc Voorhees Jr., president of Waterford Township-based MPM Consulting and a former risk analyst for Ford Motor Credit Co., said his great-grandfather owned a construction business in Detroit until the 1970s. That was inspiration to lend his Six Sigma process improvement training to the city.
His project, reviewing Detroit Department of Transportation bus departure times, will dovetail with his past research experience studying New York City subways as a New York University graduate student.
"The people in Detroit have been so wonderful and open to change, and people are passionate about what they do," he said.
