“What’s your top objective for 2020?”

Rita Hilton, Managing Director of Carita Jamaica Limited: “To get my transition into the factory building that we have recently acquired and to make sure that our social footprint with our neighbors is firmly on the ground. I have another objective – to help women entrepreneurs grow in their businesses. That is critical for me.”

Steve Pizzi , Associate Direct of Athletics/Facilities, Operations & Events at Holy Cross University: “Working in a balanced fiscal manner; making sure that the budgets are balanced. The flip side is finding the right partners to work with us for our revenue stream, while not inconveniencing our student athletes.”

Bryan Sapot, President of SensrTrx: “One is to continue to provide a lot of value for our customers. Two is to acquire a lot of new customers by a factor of five.”

Himanshu Palsule, Chief Product and Technology Office of Epicor Software Corporation: “The first is growth; we have some lofty growth goals. The second is that the market we are in is at an inflection point and more and more buyers are coming to the table looking for a new ERP system that is different from the ones they have implemented in the past. We want to be first in mind for those customers looking for a change. Third, we spend a lot of time on employee and customer satisfaction; we have some goals that we have set for ourselves and we would like to achieve those goals. If we hit all those three in 2020, we will have had a good year.”

Bill Harland, Vice President of Electronics Research, Inc.: “To keep the momentum going.”

Brad Shames, President of American Textiles Maintenance, the owner of Medico Healthcare Linen Service: “Strong double-digit growth in both of our facilities.”

Gary Oliver, Vice President, Shelmet Precision Casting. Co.: “Increase the number of customers we have, so we can expand.  We have the equipment here to do it and the employers. And we’re looking at adding a few more presses. We have over 300 customers and we rarely lose one. We have customers since the early ‘60s.”

Jack Turesky, President/COO of Hamister Group, LLC: “We’ve added a number of positions over the last 12 months and my top objective for 2020 is to get all the managers that work for the company up and running. Where employees have moved on or retired, we’ve brought on new people and I want to get them comfortable, so when I decide to retire in a few years, it will be an extremely smooth transition.”

John List, GM/Owner of Protocast JLC: “To grow at a healthy and intelligent rate. We’re looking to open a new foundry in Carson City for new work. So, getting that shop up and running is a big deal for us. It’s something that we’re looking to be successful at by mid-summer.”

Linsey Forni-Pullan, Executive VP of Pacific Inns: “Like many in our industry, retaining and attracting the right people to our organization is key. We’re looking for true hospitality hearts to take care of people. One of our goals is to be able to tell our story, in a way that people looking for a job would understand and be attracted to. If we’re able to explain our story, nine times out of ten, people are just fascinated.”
