She’s Geared Up to Help Manufacturing

By December 11, 2007General

The Los Angeles Times profiles Dorothy Rothrock, vice president of the California Manufacturers and Technology Association. Political opponents and allies alike have good things to say about her.

“Dorothy’s been a real find,” says Brett Guge, a vice president for California Steel Industries Inc. in Fontana and the manufacturers’ board chairman. “She knows how to strike a balance working with both sides of the aisle, mostly in a male-dominated group of people.”

Rothrock’s effectiveness is considered crucial to maintaining a healthy business climate for her members in a state known for fostering cutting-edge companies and pioneering entrepreneurs but also for its high operating costs and government red tape.

“It’s one of the most challenging regulatory environments in the world,” she says.

That’s for sure.
