My name is Sumonthip Gmitro. I go by Moni. Currently, I am a Product Design Practice Lead at Boeing in North Charleston, SC. I have been working closely with my globally diverse team members and other senior directors to build a strong Product Design community and accelerate the growth of Digital Transformation within the company through an implementation of Product Design and Product Management.
My background is in Industrial Engineering, in which I hold both a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Management and a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering. I started my Product Design career as a User Experience (UX) Specialist. I have been gaining UX expertise through self-teaching, attending and speaking at conferences. I received my UX Master certification through Nielsen and Norman Group, specialized in Interaction Design. I was recently announced as Boeing Designated Expert in User Experience.
One of my passion is to help people find talents among each other to create something valuable together. As a Design Practice Lead, not only I get to advise my leadership team on strategy but also encourages the motivation and positive development of my team members. Also, I have been coaching others on their career growth through speaking and leading workshops at conferences. I recently was invited to join the forum with Product Design leaders from leading digital companies, like Google, NASA and Tesla, to speak about User Experience Career Development.
I am an active listener and that is how I have been able to learn from others and practice a transformational leadership philosophy everywhere I go. Continuous learning is also how I have been able to grow both at work and outside of work life. I am a self-motivated individual by nature and eager to work through challenges and opportunities.
