Gabriel (Gabe) Martinez (Based in So. California)
Born and raised in Denver, CO, Gabriel (Gabe) Martinez practically grew up in the Contract Manufacturing industry. At the age of 18 he entered the workforce straight out of high school. With an acute eye for detail and effective communication skills, it didn’t take long for him to find his way into the realm of Quality as a mechanical inspector. He continued to work his way through the ranks while acquiring certifications as an ISO 9001 and AS9100 Lead Auditor, as well as earning certifications in 6 Sigma and Lean Manufacturing. In 2006 he secured a Quality Management position at an ISO 9001 certified contract manufacturer with 70 employees. After becoming accustomed to a small business ISO 9001 Quality Management System, Gabe sought out to challenge himself further by transitioning to an ISO 14001 OEM company with 120 employees, and eventually on to managing AS9100 certifications for other small businesses. In 2016, he accepted a Quality Assurance Manager position at an OEM manufacturer that had just secured a high-value Government contract with the United States Army. It’s here that Gabe was able to build the company’s QMS from the ground, up while Managing Quality simultaneously for 2 different companies under 1 ownership. This provided an opportunity for Gabe to refine his skills further by navigating complex Government Contracts and transitioning into Program Management. He is still employed as a Director of Quality Assurance at an aerospace composites company while providing Project Management and Quality Management Support Services to small business manufacturing companies.
