Poet Bioprocessing

Jim Schonert had no real background in bioprocessing before being named the new general manager at the company's plant in Iowa Falls, but he brought a knowledge of how to get the best out of wherever he works.

Jim Schonert does not come off as bragging when he says he knows how to get the best out of a business. In fact, the new general manager at POET Bioprocessing in Iowa Falls is almost passive, even humble, about it.

“People say I’m the leader, but no,” Schonert said. “Everybody here is a leader. It’s the people at this facility every day making sure everything works. It’s our people telling me what they need. I may not have an extensive background in bioprocessing, but I make sure we do. And I make sure those people have what they need. I have enough knowledge to understand so they can communicate what they need.”
