Company: Electro-Science Laboratories Inc.
Location: King of Prussia, Penn.
Self-motivated and fearless when it comes to trying new things, Monica DeCaro has successfully paved her way through the business world for the last three decades. With varying experience in plant accounting, cash management, payroll, and consolidations and reporting, Ms. DeCaro joined Electro-Science Laboratories in 2013 as a controller. Located in Ambler, Penn., Electro-Science Laboratories provides materials for electronics and alternative energy.
An internally-driven professional, Ms. DeCaro started in the manufacturing industry while she lived in the south. Later, when she moved back up north, she worked for her local government in finance before once again entering the field of manufacturing. Though she is well-equipped with an MBA and a CMA certification, she believes that the ticket to success is stubbornness. “Lots of people have technical skills, but being stubborn gets you there!” she states.
Ms. DeCaro believes that the greatest accomplishment in her career was when she was able to move forward in her career and attain a mid-level management position in a male-dominated field. A further honor was when she was inducted into the IMA’s Leadership Academy in 2013.
Finding one of her greatest strengths to be public speaking, Ms. DeCaro puts that talent to good use by serving as a mentor for several young people in her industry. For her female mentees, in particular, she states, “If you have any kind of mentor, it is very beneficial.”
A dynamic member of the industry, Ms. DeCaro maintains affiliations with the Institute of Management Accountants, the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Aside from industry-related work, she participates in Alex’s Lemonade, SuperKIDS of Montgomery County and the Pennsylvania State Resource Family Association.
