Lynn E. Fenton Erb
In 1994, Lynn Elizabeth Fenton Erb became the first of the family's fourth generation to join the company's management team. She began in sales & marketing and was responsible for developing Fenton's collector newsletter, Glass Messenger. After working in this department for several years, she moved into the manufacturing area of the factory, which she enjoyed.
Lynn helped coordinate the plant's Continuous Improvement of Quality Program, supervised the Decorating Services Department, provided support to the Engineering Department, and developed new management support processes in the Decorating Department. She helped with strategic planning, budgeting and improving processes with the help of information technology.
Today, she is assisting George Fenton with accounting and records setup for the jewelry division.
Prior to joining the family business, Lynn worked for Electronic Data Systems for seven years, gaining experience at a variety of manufacturing facilities. She received her Masters in International Management from Thunderbird in Arizona and her BA from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
