Erin Mcelroy

What’s a Maker Manager? At M4, it’s a role focused on people + culture. Erin's focus is on current and future clients, our employees + our professional partners. She supports the leadership team, project management, and drives business to the factory floor.

Utilizing over 15 years of hospitality industry experience paired with nonprofit administration, Erin brings a warm and gracious welcome to our professional and personal relationships. It’s not typical to manufacturing, yet she brings the sparkle and shimmer to our manufacturing house.

Locally in McHenry county, she’s an adjunct professor at McHenry County College and is the community champion for the Woodstock High School IncubatorEDU program accountable for recruitment of volunteers who coach + mentor in the entrepreneurship program. She’s a 2013 graduate of Leadership Greater McHenry County, a 2013 McHenry County Best Under 40 award winner, and a Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce 2014 Presidential Award of Excellence recipient. Additionally, she’s the owner of Trumpet + Mallow, a concierge consulting firm that supports entrepreneurs and charities to leverage connections for unprecedented results.

Erin completed her Bachelor’s in Advertising/Public Relations from Marquette University and holds a Master’s degree in Higher Education from Seattle University.

Outside of work you can find Erin adventuring with the Brothers McElroy (her two sons), keeping up with Hudson’s Labrador antics, drinking great coffee, and noshing on good eats with her husband, Sean. Oh, and probably planning a party/fab gathering, too.
