As the quote goes, “Being a good manager means doing things right; being a good leader means doing the right things.”
In other words, being not just a good, but a great, leader is hard work. It’s something that you have to consciously work toward every day. That’s why we were so proud and excited to receive news that Valutek CEO Greg Heiland was honored with an Outstanding Leadership Award from the U.S. Leaders and Entrepreneur’s Association (USLEA).
Each year, the USLEA cherry-picks a handful of leaders from the business community and recognizes them for their admirable drive, their resiliency and for their ability to enhance the positive image of entrepreneurs from all fields and industries.
Some quick history on Greg: he is a “serial entrepreneur,” having founded three firms from inception to sustainable business, including Sierra Scientific and Valutek. At Valutek, he holds the title not only of CEO, but of Cleanroom Technology Expert, having been in the industry for almost 30 years. He is a C-level executive in the cleanroom market, having been in the industry since 1982, and currently supports cleanrooms in North America, Europe and Asia. He is a proven thought leader in this field, founding CleanroomForum.com and helping develop the only cleanroom wiki, GSFCC.org.
