Deb Heed

Business Analyst, Conflict Minerals (Supply Chain Sustainability)
Ford Motor Company
MBA/MS Program 2013

Deb returned to graduate school at the age of 40 to support the launch of her next career – integrating sustainable resource use into solid business practices. Enthused by her experience living abroad in Germany from 2006-2007, Deb embarked on this new career path as a project manager at the Clean Energy Coalition in 2009. In seeing the impact she was able to encourage with homeowners, multiplied to a much greater degree with small businesses, Deb knew that in order to take her career to a level where she could make impacts on a global level, she needed to return to school to earn a master’s degree. With the world-renowned Erb Institute in her own backyard, Deb launched into the dual-degree program, gaining the experience and skill sets to allow her to make an impact on a global level. Studying supply chain dynamics through her SNRE master’s project with Dow Chemical, her internship with Carhartt, and her sustainability strategy coursework, Deb is looking forward to launching her career at Ford Motor Company. By helping to develop the systems and collaboration necessary to engage the automotive industry’s global supply chain, Deb’s goal is to support the responsible use of natural resources, chemicals, and human capital in order to create a more robust, resilient, and future-thinking international supplier base.
