by JSG26. June 2013 09:58

Here's another congratulations to our CEO, Kathleen Sarniak, on her Athena Award achievement! For a closer look at Kathleen's professional life, here is a brief bio we presented:

Kathleen Sarniak has improved the quality of life of others in both her profession and volunteer efforts.  As acting CEO of Jeannette Specialty Glass Kathleen strongly believes in product diversification which has allowed the company to not only survive but grow in these economic times.  This has enabled increased employment concentrated in the local community.  Each employee is looked upon as a family member with respect and compassion working through family situations when needed.  She goes the extra mile to ensure that her employees not only take home a paycheck but goes above and beyond the expectations of a CEO and truly cares about the health and well-being of her employees.  Her executive leadership has trickled down to others within the company to encourage everyone to plan for the future not just today.  Our goal as a company is to continue to grow and to think outside the box so we grow no matter what the economy is experiencing.  Kathleen believes in internal training and promotes from within, encouraging a career mentality.  Jeannette Specialty Glass is a family owned business, one in which Kathleen makes everyone feel a member of.

Kathleen’s community participation is widespread.  Kathleen currently serves on the Westmorland Cultural Trust board of directors and is on the Power Link Advisory Board for Alpine Packaging.  She is a former board member of The Blackburn Center, an agency against domestic and sexual violence, a board member of Seton Hill University Alumni Association and the Farrell Center for Innovation in Business at Seton Hill University.  She is a member of Women’s Presidents Organization (WPO), SMC Business Council, and Pittsburgh Tech Council and a previous member of the Women’s Leadership Council of the United Way. Kathleen has served as a panelist for E-Magnify on such topics as “How to Build a Million Dollar Business” and “How to Grow Your Business in a Down Trending Economy”.  Kathleen also actively supports Westmoreland Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Ballet and the Westmoreland County Humane Society. She is a member of Blessed Sacrament Cathedral and has volunteered her time and talents with local charities to raise funds and awareness.
