After 12 years of working in brand management for corporate America, KRISSY DZIEWIOR left the travel and long hours it demanded behind to become co-owner of the business she and her husband, Jim, started. “Little did I know, the hours would be longer with a whole other host of demands that come with entrepreneurship,” Dziewior says. “I now balance my days and many late nights between managing the business and being with our son, Harrison, and daughter, Luella.” Powder Coating Specialists is a leading powder coating and sandblasting company that focuses on refinishing all things metal for businesses and consumers. “We wanted a place customers could bring their great grandmother’s chair that she always sat on, or the patio furniture set that you no longer need but is perfect for your child’s first home,” she says. “We quickly gained the attention of homeowners that loved the idea of a one-stop shop for their metal furniture, sentimental items, railings, or even remodeling projects.” With a BA in business with concentrations in marketing and management from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, and York University Schulich School of Business executive program, Dziewior was poised for such an undertaking. “I am detailed oriented and meticulously organized, which is crucial during our peak season when we have over 100 multi-piece orders in our shop at once,” she states. “I lead with a communicative business style that leaves no guess work in what needs to be done. My goal is always to find a better way to connect and educate our customers with the service we provide.”
