Jacqueline Burkette, President

Jacqueline Burkette came to PQSI after an engaging career with Chrysler.  She enjoyed running her own department and “fixing” all of the challenges that came with it.  As a continuous improvement manager, Jacqueline stayed busy, and as an Area Manager, even busier.

Jacqueline left Chrysler to help run and operate PQSI, a new and emerging business. She saw this as an opportunity to put all her skills to work.  At the same time, this was an inviting new challenge.  In the 10 years that Jacqueline has been with PQSI, she has worked with hundreds of companies all facing some of the same challenges.

Jacqueline has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and other quality certifications to boot.  She is currently active with 3 kids (laugh out loud) and other various organizations including most recent the Michigan Business Enterprise Input Committee. She also enjoys reading and biking.

“Processes are everywhere.  Everything we do there is a process.  Our success or failure is predicated on how good or bad our processes are.”

You present the problem. We supply the solution.
