For the past three years, Diablo Magazine has recognized 40 of the East Bay’s most influential millennial artists, entrepreneurs, radio show hosts, and innovators that are under the age of 40. Last year, our COO, Stefani Pellinen-Chavez, was recognized (read the article here). We are thrilled to announce that our VP of Strategy, Nora Toure, has made it to this year’s recognition.
Nora Toure joined Ivaldi Group as Vice President of Strategy this past June 2018. Her focus at Ivaldi is to develop our business activities - value proposition, customer-centric activities, key accounts, key alliances with partners and implementation of customer needs and perspectives. To read the full article of Nora joining Ivaldi, see here. In addition to her position at Ivaldi Group, Nora is the founder of the global network Women in 3D Printing, which aims at promoting, supporting, and inspiring women using additive manufacturing technologies.
When Nora was asked what her most significant professional accomplishment is, she said, “Success is rarely attained on your own. In order to succeed, you need to build your tribe. I believe Women in 3D Printing's success, which I would qualify as my biggest professional accomplishment so far, is due to the people who are believing in its mission and are embracing it. I am certainly not the reason why people feel committed to Wi3DP's mission, but I am feeling pretty good about having initiated the platform and the blog back in 2014.”
When we asked Nora what she wants to accomplish before she turns 40, she said, “That's a very tough question as I am rarely planning things in advance for more than a few months away! With that said, our goal at Ivaldi Group is to deliver secure, scalable, and cost-effective digitized inventory and on-site production solutions in order to reduce inventory, warehousing needs, delivery times, and cost of logistics. Sharing our founders' vision for a zero-inventory, simplified supply chain, and ultimately, a reduced-waste solution, being successful at translating this vision is definitely something I'd want to accomplish before I turn 40!”
Diablo Magazine held its celebration on Thursday, September 13, 2018, where they recognized Nora and 39 key influencers. It was a night of chatting, celebration, drinks, and fun!
