Matt Sink

Matt Sink has been promoted to Vice President of Manufacturing at Mickey Truck Bodies, responsible for day-to-day safety, quality and manufacturing operations. He joined Mickey in 2007 and was most recently Manufacturing Manager. Matt continues reporting directly to CEO/President Dean Sink.

Although Matt joined the family business full-time following his graduation from Virginia Tech, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree, his Mickey career began long before that. As a teenager, he worked in building maintenance after school and during summers, and his college breaks were spent working on the assembly line inside the plant, “and anywhere else I was needed,” he says.

“Titles aren’t important here at Mickey – it’s about how you carry yourself and how you do your job every day,” he explains. “We are on a positive track going from ‘very good to great,’ and there’s some excellent talent, energy and experience driving our growth. My goal is to help keep us moving in that direction.”

At the top of his “to do” list in his new role is to “keep improving the lines of communication throughout the company – sales, manufacturing, engineering, purchasing. That’s how we will become a better place to work and a better company to do business with. That’s how we’ll go from very good to great. The most important thing I can do is to listen to our employees, our customers and our business partners,” Matt explains.

Growing up in the family business, Matt had the opportunity to work with plenty of mentors, including his late grandfather, Carl F. Mickey, Sr.; his father, Dean Sink; his uncle, Carl Mickey, Jr.; and his predecessor in charge of manufacturing, Gene Sikes. “I’ve known Gene since I was about 2 feet tall, and to have worked with him for all these years has been an incredible experience,” Matt says. “I’ve learned so much from Gene, but I haven’t even scratched the surface of what he knows about manufacturing.” In addition to his takeaways from attending a full slate of industry seminars, Matt says, “I’m still learning from everyone here at Mickey.”

And he’s still excited about his classroom. “This is my ideal job; I’ve always liked the feeling of hands-on work, to be able to look back at the end of the day and see something that we created from start to finish,” Matt explains. “It’s a tremendous sense of accomplishment that we all share. And on top of that, it’s fun. I love what I do. I love getting up in the mornings and coming to work. In fact, I love Mondays.”
