Harry participated in President Obama’s 2012 Insourcing Forum at the White House, won the Jan. 2013 The Economist debate on outsourcing and offshoring, and received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014.

He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Engineering at MIT in 1967, as well as an MBA from the University of Chicago in 1981.
Harry and the Reshoring Initiative focus primarily on bringing back as much manufacturing as possible, at the current U.S. level of competitiveness. Secondarily, they work to improve U.S. competitiveness, by advocating for needed policy changes and by strengthening the U.S. skilled workforce. Harry serves on the board of MSSC (Manufacturing Skill Standards Council), a leading manufacturing credentialing organization.
