McAllen to host Aptiv’s Executive Lean Leadership Training


Aptiv Global Technology Group selected Embassy Suites McAllen Convention Center in McAllen, Texas to host its Executive Lean Leadership Training this August. The four-day training conference will be attended by 34 international guests, generating an estimated $23,800.00 for local businesses.

Aptiv is a global technology company that develops safer, greener and more connected solutions enabling the future of mobility. Its headquarters are in Ireland, and has maquiladoras in Matamoros and Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

Lean leadership training has a long standing reputation in reducing total costs and improving process efficiency. Companies like Aptiv adopt “lean” to grow their business and find success in a competitive global market. The key to successful lean implementation is changing the culture and the way people think.

“Teaching people how to use tools can be easy; however, changing mental models requires determination and strategy,” said Lisa Ramirez, Sales Manager at Visit McAllen. “We welcome Aptiv’s Executive Lean Leadership Training to McAllen for the second time this year and wish the team all the best with their training!”

Aptiv’s Autonomous Mobility team is focused on developing and commercializing autonomous vehicles and systems that enable point-to-point mobility via large fleets of autonomous vehicles in challenging urban driving environments. Aptiv has talented teams working across the globe- from Singapore to Boston, to Matamoros and Reynosa, Mexico.

“It has been my pleasure and tremendous honor to be working with our special partner and now our good friend Mr. Mario Perez of Aptiv,” said Steven Villarreal, Director of Sales at Embassy Suites McAllen Convention Center. “It’s a special privilege for us at Embassy Suites by Hilton McAllen Convention Center to be hosting Aptiv’s next event meetings.  We are looking forward to several other opportunities we will have again and again in the future to continue our partnership with Aptiv here at Embassy Suites in McAllen.”
