Methods Workshop Under New Management

By The Needle's Eye

These past 40+ years have been a joy to John Stern as he created and steered within the sewn products industry the legacy of Methods Workshop, LLC. He has now decided to take a step back and spend more time enjoying life in new ways. He will still be involved in Methods Workshop INTERNATIONAL, LLC but will be handing over the day-to-day operations to a new management team.

Joshua Linker – Joshua has been involved with Methods Workshop for 15 years providing Tech Support and Applications Development. He will continue as Director of Information Technology, but will also be taking on many of the administrative tasks in the day-to-day operations.

Arturo Rodriguez – After many years serving as the Latin America Director for [TC]², he has been actively involved in setting up Methods Workshop international distributors. He will be the Chief Executive Officer.

Kelly Riley – Kelly has many years of using his engineering expertise within the sewn products industry and many years with Methods Workshop. Kelly will be the Director of International Implementation and Training on both ETC (Engineered Tru Cost) and QTC (Quick Tru Cost) systems. In addition, he will be the principal USA Distributor.

"I look forward to Methods Workshop INTERNATIONAL thriving under these gentlemen and trust that you will give them the same support as you have graced me over these years." - John Stern
