GRANDVIEW, Missouri – Safety lighting producer Peterson Manufacturing has a new vice-president of product management.
In her new role, Kristen Goodson will be responsible for developing product strategies and co-ordinating cross-functional team initiatives across the planning, engineering, tooling, manufacturing, packages and product launching operations. She will also serve on Peterson’s board of directors.
She has been with the company since 1995, and her most recent title was director of product management. Outside of Peterson, Goodson is the immediate past-president and a current board member of the Transportation Safety Equipment Institute (TESI), a non-profit trade association serving the needs of safety equipment manufacturers.
“Enhanced vehicle safety and visibility are major concerns for fleets and trailer OEMs,” Goodson said. “I’m excited about Peterson’s capabilities to meet those concerns with an ever-growing line of great products.”
