Shift Supervisor, Jack Sites, selected as ESOP Employee Owner of the Year in statewide competition.
Waukesha, WI - March 2010 - The Wisconsin Chapter of the ESOP Association has selected Wildeck Shift Supervisor, Jack Sites, as its 2010 Employee Owner of the Year. This prestigious and highly competitive award is presented annually to an employee who exemplifies the highest standards of employee ownership through their dedication and commitment to their company's success.
"This is a high honor for Jack and for the company," said Keith G. Pignolet, President of Wildeck, Inc. "Jack has been with Wildeck for nearly 28 years and is active in many of the company's ESOP activities. He has made significant contributions to improve product quality, our manufacturing methods, and in streamlining many of our production processes. He is truly deserving of this award."
"I never thought I would be an 'owner' in any capacity," stated Sites, "especially in a privately-held company. As an ESOP owner, I try to apply my product and manufacturing knowledge to influence change and make things happen in the easiest, and most cost-effective way. At the 'end-of-the-day,' I want to make sure that we remain profitable - especially during these tough economic times - and do my part where we all benefit as employee owners."
Sites will compete against a competitive field of employee owners from other State and Regional Chapters for the title "National Employee of the Year." The winner of this prestigious award will be announced at the ESOP Association's 32nd Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. in May 2010.
