SYRACUSE, N.Y. — MACNY, the Manufacturers Association, announced that Hilary Hext has joined the organization as its new training manager.

In her new role, she will manage all marketing and coordination for MACNY’s training and leadership development programs. Hext will also be facilitating both existing and new training offerings as a MACNY trainer for both open enrollment and on-site classes. She will report to David Freund, MACNY’s chief leadership officer, the association said in a news release.

Hext comes to MACNY from Marquardt Switches in Cazenovia. She started her career at that company in 2012 in Marquardt’s HR department as an intern, while pursuing her degree at Cazenovia College.

Upon graduating in 2013 with a degree in business, minoring in communication studies, Hext continued to work at Marquardt Switches, where she was promoted to HR administrator and finally the company’s training coordinator. In this role, she developed the company’s Cornerstone OnDemand software process, served as a member of the Global Development Team, and established and ran the company’s Health and Wellness Committee.

“On behalf of the MACNY staff, I would like to express just how excited we are to have Hilary joining us,” MACNY President Randy Wolken said in a news release. “Hilary’s extensive knowledge in both training and human resources is a wonderful addition to the MACNY team, and will undoubtedly come as an incredible asset to MACNY membership and our future program offerings in training and development,”

MACNY represents more than 300 companies in a 26-county region in Central and Upstate New York.
