Eaton woman honoured as 2018 woman in manufacturing

 August 02, 2018

Mary Kim Elkins, senior vice president — taxes at Eaton, has been selected as one of Crain's Cleveland Business 2018 Notable Women in Manufacturing, representing women who were nominated from various companies throughout Northeast Ohio. 

Always thinking several steps ahead

Mary Kim is much like a world champion chess player, according to Robert Zweerus, a senior director in Eaton’s global indirect tax group: She is always thinking “several steps ahead of the game,” Zweerus said in his nomination form.

Mary Kim joined power management company Eaton in 2006 as director of tax strategy for its fluid power group and was promoted several times before assuming leadership for Eaton’s global tax function. She leads a 200-person tax department spanning over 30 different countries.

Mary Kim is credited with guiding Eaton smoothly through changes in the rapidly evolving and complicated corporate tax environment. She strengthened her tax department’s culture and led the largest supply chain restructuring in the company’s 110-year history, which involved consolidating intellectual property from more than 20 countries and streamlining more than a dozen financial systems. Recently, Elkins was selected as a member of the 2019 Leadership Cleveland class.
