Clearfield CEO Cheri Beranek Podzimek Named Industry Leader at Mpls/St. Paul Business Journal's Women in Business Ceremony
Podzimek's role in Clearfield's turnaround, including revitalizing profitability, rebranding the company, and new product innovation cited.
Podzimek's significant role in Clearfield's turnaround was cited as a key reason why she is at the forefront of the telecommunications industry and still breaking new ground. The Business Journal noted, "When Podzimek took the helm of Clearfield in 2007, the Plymouth-based company was unprofitable and struggling to rewire itself for growth. Podzimek rebranded and reinvented Clearfield, shutting down a research-and-development operation that weighed down earnings, and focusing the business on its core customers: small, rural telecom service providers. The result was a $1.5 million profit in fiscal 2008 versus a $2.9 million loss the year before."
