Gene sits down with Janet Dabek Steiner former CEO of Thoro Packaging, Inc. and currently a motivational key note speaker.
Thoro packaging was formed by her father Macy Dabek in 1968 after he moved the family away from the cold winters of New Jersey to Anaheim, Ca. Thoro was engaged in the short run folding carton business.
After graduating from high school , Janet took a few accounting colleges and began helping her dad with the company books. Macy could not afford to pay his daughter as they were tight on cash in the formative years .
In 1982 due to poor health Macy was forced to step down and Janet was named as the new president & CEO. For the next 36 years Janet was the driving force of the company. She scaled the business from $1 million to $ 40 million and then sold it in 2018 for millions. Janet shares her entrepreneurial journey, her best practices and her plan to keep the legacy of her dad & mom, Macy & Helen Dabek alive today.
