Welcome to ISM-Nashville, Inc.

 Member Spotlight: John Lampley


John Lampley currently works with E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. (DuPont) as a global commodity buyer for engineered equipment. He is also regularly involved in Sourcing & Logistics projects such as the global SAP E-Sourcing implementation and the IT treatment during the upcoming Performance Chemicals spin-off.   During his 15+ years with DuPont, John has served as a ATO plant engineer, Six Sigma blackbelt, operations supervisor, area projects leader, site buyer/site sourcing lead, and for the last 5 years as a commodity buyer. The DuPont spin-off of Performance Chemicals in the middle of 2015 will be leading to changes for John whether he remains with DuPont or moves to the new company being created. Either way, this will be an exciting time leading to new challenges and opportunities.

In recent years, John has enjoyed traveling to Spain, India, and China to support his DuPont work. He particularly enjoyed local culture including Irani Chai tea in Hyderabad India, late dinner times and freezing ocean dips in Gijon Spain, and the variety of food and explosive building going on all around in cities in China.

John earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 1998, Six Sigma black belt in 2002, and his ISM CPSM in 2012. John has been a member or ISM-Nashville since 2011 has volunteered on the technology committee since 2012.

John has been married to Robyn for 12 years and they have a 10 year old daughter, Megan, and a 9 year old son, James. Outside of work John is an active member of the local church of Christ and enjoys all kinds of activities with his family and friends including coaching soccer, hiking, swimming, mountain biking, amusement parks, and the like.

John attends ISM-Nashville monthly dinner meetings and you can too. Please look for our updated schedule later this month for upcoming events.
