My name is Don Zelichowski. I am a dynamic, hard working, forward thinking person with several years of supervisory experience seeking an opportunity to help your company move ahead in today's competetive market. I possess a tremendous upside and limitless potential for advancement. I would be an asset to your company.
My career started at Denso Mfg. MI in Battle Creek, MI in 1989. From my ground floor opportunity I spent ten years learning and perfecting my craft, interpersonal and relationship management skills. Also during that time I received some of the best training available in the manufacturing world. Some of my training included Safety Training in an Industrial Environment, Denso Robot Training, Allen Bradley Touch Screen Controller Training and Public Speaking. In spite of this formal training, I also was able to become a knowledge expert on several different types of multi-million dollar auto parts manufacturing machines such as 500 ton stamping presses, vacumn brazing furnaces, rolled aluminum radiator, heater core and evaporator fin-forming machines, core assembly machines and several other types of machines. Some of my accomplishments include...
As my career progressed, I realized that I had a passion for management. Because I am a driven, results oriented person, and because I am highly competetive, I looked at advancement into management as a challenge and a way to win in the workplace. If having the "go to" team in a given department means winning, then my record is second to none.
Also included are activities toward achieving and maintaining area and department goals, overseeing leak and scrap reduction activities, and participating in area improvement activities such as Kaisen projects.

In June of 2006 on the eve of promotion, My family and I decided that a career change was the best decision for us. I started researching how to successfully transition into the insurance world and become an Insurance Agent. This bold decision led me to a company called Bankers Life and Casualty Company. With help from them, I obtained my insurance licenses in Life, Health and Accident Insurance.
Though never having done sales, I exceled. I achieved a milestone and was a branch contest winner within the first two months with the company. My wife and I received an all expense paid trip to Chicago for a three day reward.
After nine months with Bankers, I realized that I could help more people by becoming an independent agent. I left Bankers and created Infinity Benefits Group. The initial startup was an enormous learning process that helped me grow and blossom into a successful business owner and entreprenuer. Through Infinity Benefits Group I am currently contracted with 60+ carriers that are widely considered to be the most dynamic and financially solvent companies in the business.
With a tight economy looming in 2008, I decided that I could run my business and go back and do what I do best and that is manage people. I accepted a Team Facilitator position with ASMO MFG in Battle Creek Michigan. I was in charge of the Washer Department on my respective shift. Some of my job duties included....
After only five shorts months with ASMO, I was promoted to the Technical Training Specialist. I was given the responsibility to create and develop a training department for the company that would serve everyone from temporary workers right on up through the executive level. ASMO did not currently have a department or skeleton, for that matter, in place when I started this position. I had to start from scratch.
With Economy still slumping the company decided to reduce it's workforce. I was kept to backfill a position of need. I was now named Team Facilitator over 2nd and 3rd shifts Production Control/Shipping and Receiving. My duties included....
I enjoy watching and playing sports. I also enjoy coaching as it helps me polish my people skills. Coaching youth athletics offers many challenging situations with many different personalities. I am also a website design and SEO enthusiast.
