Grady-White Boats Inc. marketing vice president Shelley Tubaugh was awarded with the Women in Manufacturing STEP Ahead Award.

The STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead initiative began in 2012 to celebrate women in the manufacturing industry who are making a difference through advocacy, mentorship, engagement, promotion, and leadership, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Tubaugh has made significant improvements to the systems of Grady-White Boats, Inc. over the course of her career, according to the Manufacturing Institute.

Since 1988, when she created the first electronic records system and coding for warranty claims analysis, Tubaugh has been an integral part of the company.

She is responsible for the first Grady-White retail website, the first business-to-business website, the first online warranty submission portal, the first dealer standards reporting system and countless other innovations.

"Manufacturing offers women and men a great level playing field in which to excel," said Tubaugh in a statement. "The collaborative nature of the manufacturing environment itself brings out the very best in all, as we work together solving problems and reaching goals. Meeting amazing people along the way is a true gift too."

The STEP Ahead Awards highlight the achievements of women in manufacturing on a national stage. STEP Ahead aims to “close the skills and gender gap” and inspire future generations of women to consider careers in manufacturing.

On April 10, The Manufacturing Institute will recognize the 130 award recipients — including Tubaugh, Alicia Harris of Sea Ray, and Valerie Harriell of Volvo Penta of the Americas — at a reception at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
