Who's New At Avatar
Mike Duffy, Quality Assurance Manager
We’d like to take a moment to celebrate Avatar’s newest hire, Mike Duffy! Mike comes to Avatar with ten years’ worth of experience as a food safety professional, and we are grateful to have him on board as Quality Assurance Manager. Mike’s American Society of Quality certifications include: Certified HACCP Auditor, Certified Quality Auditor, Certified Supply Chain Professional.
Mike’s first job was that of a grocer, so it’s only fitting that he still works with food. His favorite professional accomplishment was creating and implementing a lasting SOP to ensure accurate and efficient metal detection, thereby improving his employer’s HACCP measures.
These days, when he’s not working at Avatar, Mike enjoys visiting Civil War battlefields, a passion that has translated in some ways to his hobby of making custom, engraved pens – some of which are crafted from witness tree wood.
What Mike enjoys best about working at Avatar is that it affords him a work-life balance to spend time supporting his children’s extracurricular activities.
