Hoffer family to speak at Elgin chamber event
The Hoffer family of Hoffer Plastics Corp. in South Elgin will be featured at the next Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Unplugged-All in the Family, sponsored by the Grand Victoria Casino.
The luncheon will be held Tuesday, March 20, at the Grand Victoria Casino pavilion, 250 S. Grove in the Fox River Room on the second floor, at 11:30 a.m.
Members of the Hoffer family who will share their leadership styles include Bill Hoffer, president; Charlotte Canning, vice president of brand and culture; Alex Hoffer, vice president of business development; and Gretchen Farb, vice president of value creation.
Hoffer was founded in South Elgin by the late Robert A. Hoffer, a chemist, in 1953. He acquired a used molding machine to start his first product -- a screw that advanced the material in stick deodorants.
A global leader in custom injection molding, Hoffer Plastics leads in customer and employee satisfaction and charitable giving. From its founder to current executive leadership, it has been the goal of Hoffer to provide turnkey solutions and state-of-the-art technology to its customers.
The CEO Unplugged luncheon provides a firsthand opportunity to learn what made has made this family-owned business successful and adapt their executive leadership tips into your own business. The format includes an informal interview with the executive team ranging from risks they have taken to what keeps them up at night, and more and a quick fire-round of questions. Time is available to ask questions. The goal is to walk away with tidbits of advice from the Hoffer team businesses can implement right away.
