Donna Bryant

Enviromental Operations Unit Superintendent

Youth hasn’t stunted Bryant’s career trajectory. As the youngest superintendent Syngenta’s St. Gabriel Plant has ever had, she leads a 26-person unit that treats the wastewater streams for the entire plant and removes the remaining waste from the site. She cites a research role, internships, and a rotational program for helping her to find an application of her interests in biological sciences, problem-solving, math, and improving the world.

Working with and managing a group of employees challenges and benefits Bryant. “Managing people consistently but in different ways based on their personalities” can be difficult, she explains, but “being able to work hands-on with my employees to make the unit run safely and efficiently” is what she enjoys most about her job.
