Letter from the Top - Dr. Ned Fawaz
It is hard to imagine that Energy International Corporation will be celebrating its 37th year in business in 2016. It doesn’t seem that long ago that I started the company with a couple of people in a small office in Troy, MI. We might not have made it if it wasn’t for one of those people, Beth Rutkowski, who has worked for me for more than 35 years. Beth announced her retirement in October and is enjoying a life of leisure with her husband Don, children and grandchildren. She helped build the foundation for our company and became a second mother to many who worked with her all these years. I will also be reducing my workload this coming year.
After 37 years I have decided to turn the day-to-day operations of EIC-USA over to President Allie Bazzy and more of the worldwide operations over to my son Alex, Vice President of Operations, I don’t plan of retiring as I will still be the CEO and will be on board to make executive decisions and provide guidance as needed. I have realized over the last few years that the future Energy International will need to be a different company than the one I founded 37 years ago. I am very confident in the abilities of Allie and Alex and with the support of the Vice Presidents and Managers of the various offices and branches to carry on the vision and tradition of Energy as we embark on the next chapter of our journey.
