Barry Anstandig – Rescar

Rescar keeps American freight trains rolling; and Barry Anstandig keeps expenses from going off the rails. As senior vice president and chief financial officer for Rescar, he runs a lean financial engine for the privately held, Downers Grove, Illinois, company specializing in repair, maintenance and cleaning of railroad cars. That’s an essential service considering that […]

Jim Campbell – Adventec Manufacturing Inc.

The path to progress can be overlooked by disproportionate attention on something else, necessary as it might be. Case in point, says Jim Campbell: the internal combustion engine. It’s been powering what used to be called the horseless carriage since the latter part of the 19th century and getting more efficient all the time. But […]

RSP Inc.

Bendable and foldable keypads. Wine aerators using motor driven magnet technology. Wearable electronics, sensors and devices. The internet of things (IoT) connects our world to physical objects. RSP Inc. has certainly come a long way in 55 years, especially when you consider that when it launched in 1964, the family company’s main output was real […]

Adelaida Adames – Philip Morris International DO & Caribbean Markets

Times change for any industry, and Philip Morris International—the world’s most successful cigarette company—has long acknowledged the old axiom about smoking being hazardous to one’s health. It is aiming for a smoke-free future by promoting products such as e-cigarettes and technology that heats but doesn’t burn. That makes it an exciting time for Adelaida Adames, […]

Michael Guidry – Cold Spring Brewing Co.

So what came first, the beer or the can? The beer, of course, but without the can it’s not going far, kegs of any size being unwieldly in the grocery store. And as far as bottles go, customers and shippers prefer cans, because chilled aluminum keeps the suds cold and they’re easier to transport. But […]

Kathleen Martinez – BP

If she could turn back the clock to her schoolgirl years, Kathleen Martinez might well immerse herself in the STEM curriculum that she so encourages today’s young people to consider, especially those who have been bypassed by the science-technology-engineering-math professions. But when Martinez, the youngest of 14 children born to a loving family in Laredo, […]

Prashant Shitut – USHydrations

Grab any bottle from any cooler in any convenience store in America, and there’s a near-100 percent chance that the first ingredient listed will be water. It’s more than a building block of life; it’s the keystone of a trillion-dollar global industry. And yet, there’s a common misconception that each individual brand bottles its own […]

John Prado – Siemens Bolivia

Chief executive officers have their stump speeches, but given the opportunity to be heard, John Prado may opt for a lesson that encompasses history and political economy. Bolivia, the land-locked South American country of his birth and return, is blessed with natural resources that have not been used to full advantage. For far too long, […]

Justin Hinks – Furniture Mart USA

A one-time shopping fixture in Mason City, Iowa, the Kmart on Fourth Street Southwest announced in January 2014, that its liquidation sale would be a couple of weeks later, with the doors closing by spring. The news set off the usual unpleasantries that accompany a major store’s demise, with local officials bemoaning the loss of […]

Brian Ball – Lyndon Furniture

Vermont giving rise to such bucolic imagery, it’s no wonder why businesses well outside of it try to capitalize on the Green Mountain State’s charms. It’s even been suggested that packaging decorated by drawings of farmhouses, covered bridges and snowy peaks enables a markup in price, consumers rarely reading the fine print about where the […]
