    The 2013 McHenry County Power Book is compiled by the McHenry County Business Journal through online, email and phone surveys.

    Not all companies came forth with information, so therefore not every McHenry County company in a cor-responding category is listed in this publication.

    Businesses that get the McHenry County Business Journal quarterly receive a copy of the 2013 edition. It also is available at the McHenry County Business Journal news office, at the Northwest Herald, 7717 S. Route 31, Crystal Lake.

    We hope that you find this annual reference edition informative and keep it handy throughout the year.

    NOTE TO READERSIt is not the intent of these lists to

    imply that a companys ranking is indicative of its quality. Lists were compiled through information sup-plied by the companies. Not all busi-nesses in each category responded to requests for information.

    NP stands for Not Provided. NA stands for Not Applicable. Listings with one asterisk show information from 2011, two asterisks indicate data from 2010.

    The cover for the 2013 Power Book was designed by Northwest Herald Features Editor

The Workforce Network Boards annual labor report shows moderate job growth in the coming years, but it also indicates the county could face a shortage of skilled labor as older employees leave the workforce.

    By BRETT ROWLAND browland@shawmedia.com

    WOODSTOCK Despite lower un-employment rates, McHenry Countys job outlook remains muted.

    Unemployment stood at 7.5 percent in October, down from 8.7 percent from the prior year. In September, the rate had fallen to 7 percent, the low-est since December 2008, when it was 7 percent.

    But those figures mask some of the challenges area businesses and work-ers could face in the coming years, ac-cording to a report by the McHenry County Workforce Network Board.

    Businesses throughout McHenry County are expected to hire more workers, but they may not have enough skilled laborers as older work-

    ers retire and younger workers are retrained.

    McHenry Countys manufacturing sector, which accounts for 16.7 percent of all jobs in the county, will likely continue to shrink.

    Though other industries, such as health care, could see double-digit growth, many of those new jobs will pay less, according to the 2012 McHen-ry County Labor Report, released in the fall.

    There were 16,767 manufacturing jobs in the county in 2012 with average earnings per worker of $68,080.

    This key sector, which accounts for nearly a quarter of the countys gross regional product, is projected to shrink 7 percent by 2015, shedding some 1,112 jobs.

    What were seeing is more evolved

    manufacturing, said Pam Cumpata, president of the McHenry County Economic Development Corporation. As manufacturing becomes more ef-ficient, we may see a decline in the number of positions.

    Conversely, health care and social assistance jobs will increase 10 per-cent by 2015, bringing 1,091 new jobs. But the average 2012 earnings per

    worker in this segment was $51,840, about $16,000 less than in manufactur-ing, according to the report.

    Adjusted for inflation, the countys per capita income dropped 8.6 percent between 2000 and 2010, the labor report found.

    The report predicted job growth in McHenry County would increase by 2.8 percent, going from 122,746 jobs in 2012 to 126,198 in 2015. Thats slower than the projected statewide job growth of 3.1 percent for the same time period and well below the national increase of 4.3 percent.

    Even so, the job growth is welcome, said Jeffery Poynter, director of the McHenry County Workforce Network Board.

    If we can stay above 2 percent, that will be good, he said.

    Though unemployment persists, the numbers have leveled off more recently, said Julie Courtney, direc-tor of the McHenry County Workforce Network.

    Is it rosy for everybody? Abso-lutely not. Theres still a lot of people out there in need, she said. But now there is a little glimmer of hope. Those people who are unemployed are get-ting back to work a little faster than in the last couple of years.

    One problem is that some of the unemployed arent qualified for exist-ing job opportunities. As older skilled workers prepare to retire, theres a dearth of younger workers with the same skills to fill those jobs.

    The shortage is a major concern for local manufacturers.

    This is getting to the point where its critical, Courtney said. As one manufacturer has said, if we dont have the people to do this, these jobs and these businesses are going to go away.

    And if manufacturing is making up 16 percent of your [total employment], thats going to have a huge impact on what the future of McHenry County looks like.

    Fifty-four percent of workers in the countys manufacturing sector are at least 45 years old.

    All that industrial knowledge will be leaving the workforce, Poynter said. Who is going to replace them?

    Theres a much smaller pool of prime age workers behind them, he said.

    The McHenry County Workforce Network, local manufacturers, and McHenry County College are working together to train younger workers to meet the demand.

    However, skilled workers may re-tire faster than new workers can be trained to replace them, in part be-cause of the amount of training re-quired for high-skill manufacturing, Poynter said.

    In addition to bolstering local train-ing efforts, local officials are hoping McHenry Countys schools and other amenities will attract younger work-ers and their families to the area as the larger national economy improves, Poynter said.

    While some local companies are preparing to expand, others are tread-ing water amid concerns about eco-nomic recovery and the looming fiscal

    cliff. Centegra Health System plans to

    build a third hospital in Huntley for $233 million by 2016. The hospital is expected to create 1,100 permanent jobs, Centegra officials have said.

    Sage Products, which was acquired by Chicago private equity firm Madi-son Dearborn Partners in mid-Decem-ber, is also gearing up for expansion in the future.

    With Madison Dearborn Partners,

    Sage will be looking to grow and ex-pand our workforce here in Cary as well as our sales force domestically and internationally, Sage Products President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Brown told the Northwest Her-ald in November.

    Other businesses are focused on holding on to what they have rather than growing.

    Weve been real careful about our routes, said Jill Dinsmore, president of JA Frate Inc., a transportation com-pany based in Crystal Lake. Its sad to say, but were just trying to main-tain.

    However, the company was on bet-ter footing than it was a few years ago. It has a stable customer base and enough money to replace aging trucks with new models to lower the average age of its fleet, Dinsmore said.

    Signs of a broader economic recov-ery have brought some confidence to the labor market.

    Unemployment is going down, Poynter said. And employers are starting to talk to us more and more.

    McHenry County Clerk, Katherine Schultz

    County Clerks ofce keeps local democracy runningt times, it can feel like theelection cycle never ends,but for McHenry CountyClerk Katherine Schultz

    and her staff, its largely true.Though elections occur only onceor twice a year, wrapping up oneand preparing for the next is anongoing process.On election night, after votesare counted, all election suppliesand equipment is locked away fora required sixty days, in case arecount is needed. But once thosesixty days are up, Schultz and herstaff begins preparing for the nextelection, starting with assembling212 precinct kits.Workers test all voting equip-ment, and order repairs andreplacements as needed. Wereuse most of the signs and formsthat are used in each precinct.This saves the County money,and were recycling all of theseproducts, Schultz said.Voter registration is an ongoingprocess, as is keeping track ofdeadlines for candidate ling andplacing legal notices. Once thedeadlines pass, Schultz and herstaff begin to prepare the ballots.The process is much more com-plicated than it sounds.

    Ballots differ by precinct, becausethere are different candidates forlocal ofces, and local referen-dums. Each requires a differentballot style and in a primary elec-tion, there can be as many as 800different ballot styles, she said.Missing a ballot style is one of herbiggest on-the-job fears, Schultzsaid.Once ballots are printed, theyrechecked three more times, by sixdifferent people. Then comes atwo-week process known as lockand load.Each of our 150 optical scan and150 touch screen units are pre-tested with audited test decks ofballots. Once everything checksout, they are sealed and distrib-uted to townships for distributionto the precincts, Schultz said.Election judges must be trainedfor Election Day and early voting.We have 10 early voting sites,which we staff with electionjudges, one of each from the twomajor political parties serve at alltimes. For the November 2012election, we voted approximately32,000 people at early voting sitesor through the mail, she said.On Election Day, it takes over

    1,000 election judges to staff thepolls. Just getting these judgesassigned and making sure they aregoing to serve is a huge undertak-ing. Two staff members work onthis for approximately a monthprior to the election, Schultzsaid.No votes are counted until thepolls close. All precincts returntheir equipment to local dropoff sites, where vote counts aresent by modem to the TabulationRoom at the County Building.For the November, 2012 election,66 percent of McHenry Countyregistered voters cast a ballot.Schultz joined the County Clerksofce as a staff member in 1959and was elected McHenry CountyClerk for the rst time in 1990. Inaddition to overseeing elections,the ofce extends taxes, maintainsvital records, records and registersall notaries, keeps records of allthe bills paid by the county andtakes minutes for the CountyBoard.Of her many duties, Schultzenjoys elections the most. I ndthe process fascinating and alwaysfeel a real sense of accomplish-ment. Theres also the fact thateveryone has a right to vote, eventhough they may not use it, shesaid.

    Woodstock Chamber New Campaign Gives Chamber a Boost

    hen creating a vision to helpgrow the Woodstock Chamberof Commerce and Industry,Executive Director Shari Gray,

    decided to think small.Intrigued by the advertising campaign of alocal bank, she wondered if a community-focused strategy might be a good t forthe chamber. Were a smaller chamber,compared to some of the others insurrounding communities. It has a veryintimate feel and our members all knoweach other. I can probably name everymember, said Gray, who became executivedirector two years ago.The chambers small size presents severaladvantages. Since were not bogged downby lots of different focuses, we can have aone on one connection to our members.And our members are very loyal to oneanother. We strongly believe in supportinglocal businesses, she said.With 225 members that represent anarray of industries, including technology,communications, graphic design, insuranceand nancial services, health care andnot-for-prots, ranging in size from home-based businesses to large manufacturing

    rms, nding a unied strategy was achallenge.I worked with the membership committeeto come up with something that everyonecould buy into. Jon Wenzel of MyriadCreative Services came up with an idea andit went from there, she said.Instead of downplaying the chambersdiversity, the new campaign highlights it,with a new tagline, I Am the WoodstockChamber.Large posters of chamber members intheir businesses, along with the tagline aredisplayed in the chamber ofce and on itswebsite. Each poster also included a quotefrom the business owner about how theyvebenetted from chamber membership.A new logo shows a silhouette of theWoodstock Square with the organizationsname in white block style letters across thebottom.Not only is the campaign a way to marketthe chamber, its a way for members tomarket themselves.An all-digital package, includes a websitebanner, a social media spotlight with abiography, and a Monday morning email

    blast, along with a graphic for the businessto use on their website. A second packageincludes all of the digital features, plus printcomponents including a front page articlein the chambers newsletter, and a 3 x 4poster, showing the business owner withthe words I Am The Woodstock Chamberof Commerce and Industry behind them.Quarter-page ads in local print publicationscan be added for an extra charge.The campaign has brought lots ofcomments from businesses outside thecommunity about what a great effort it is.Weve tried to nd our own unique brandand I think we nally hit on it, she said.Each month the chamber offers a numberof social and networking opportunitiesfor members. In February, the group willhold its annual dinner and recognize aWoodstock resident with the HaroldBuschkopf Award for distinguishedcommunity service. Its for someone whosgone above and beyond, going into thecommunity and sharing their talents, Graysaid.A Vermont native, Gray and her husbandcame to the area sixteen years ago, becauseof a job transfer. During that time, she

    has observed a number of changes in thecommunity.There have been both physical changesand on the commerce side. The smallretailers have had challenges, but themajority have survived. There have beenhighs and lows, but were moving in theright direction, and a lot of people havestepped up to help us get there, she said.

    President & CEO: Steven L. Slack

    Home State Bank strategicallypositioned for the future

    areful planning, smartstrategies, and almost acentury of weathering

    challenging economic cycles,have put Home State Bank in astrong position for the future.

    Looking forward, theres noquestion that to be success-ful, community banks need tochange, said Steven L. Slack,President and CEO of HomeState Bank.

    The bank opened its doors toMcHenry County in 1915, andfor over ninety-seven years, hasserved the McHenry Countyarea. They are now in theirthird generation of familyownership.

    We have withstood the chal-lenges of the past few yearsand emerged stronger. Were ina better position than ever inour history to move forward,Slack said, highlighting fourkey strategies, which will carryHome State Bank into thefuture.

    First, we want to actively growour asset management and trustareas. We are one of only twolocal banks in the county witha trust department, so thatsdenitely a growth area, Slacksaid.

    Home State Banks Trust &Asset Management Group

    offers trustee services, estateadministration, and can serveas the guardian of the estatefor minors and disabled adults.The banks trust and asset man-agement specialists also adviseindividuals and families on thetransfer of wealth to future gen-erations, and related services,such as investment manage-ment, retirement planning andland trusts. We want to assistour trust customers with assetallocation and direct them toappropriate investment vehiclesfor their nancial goals, Slacksaid.

    Commercial lending and SmallBusiness Administration loansdrive the second strategy. Weare also the leading small busi-ness lender in the county, andwe have been almost every yearfor the past decade. We haveprovided loans for Main Streettypes of businesses, such asretailers, small manufacturingcompanies, and many more,he said.

    Not only has Home Stateprovided loans for businessstart-up, the bank has also lentmoney for business construc-tion, enabling existing compa-nies to expand into new, largerfacilities.

    A third growth area is residen-tial mortgage lending. Giventhat interest rates are at a his-

    torical low, and home sales arerising, driven by a combinationof low prices and interest rates,we see tremendous opportunityin this area, Slack said.Home State Banks residen-tial mortgage division beganapproximately ten years ago,but has grown to be one ofthe leading lenders in the area,generating $160 to $170 mil-lion in residential mortgagesannually. The past year hasbrought steady increases inresidential renance, homeconstruction loans and mort-gages. We work with govern-ment loan programs and thirdparties to get our customersthe lowest rate possible, Slacksaid.

    Though the fourth strategy isnot new, it is the foundationnot only for a successful bank,but also for a successful com-munity. From the beginning,Home State Banks goal hasbeen to create a better qualityof life for their neighbors, andto work together to build a bet-ter community.

    Many of Home State Banksapproximately two-hundredemployees are involved with avariety of not-for-prot orga-nizations, ranging from localfood pantries, ne arts organi-zations, the United Way, theLand Conservancy of McHenryCounty, and many more.

    C

    hear thank-you all the time,from different organizations

    that have benetted from theefforts of our employees. I feelgood about that. It helps othersand it helps the bank, becausewhen the community is stronger,so are we. Steven L. Slack,President and CEO of Home StateBank.

    Paula Dorion-Gray, CFP

    Dorion-Gray Retirement Planning Financial Services Entrepreneur Committed to Educating Clients

    s an entrepreneur who hasexperienced her own lifechallenges, Paula Dorion-Gray, CFP and President of

    Dorion-Gray Retirement Planningin Crystal Lake, nds her greatestreward guiding clients through theirlifes challenges.Whether its divorce, retirementor the death of a spouse, we guidepeople through lifes critical events.Helping a client understand howtheir nances work, and how toplan to maintain their lifestylein retirement is one of the mostrewarding things I do, she said.Dorion-Grays nancial servicescareer spans three decades, yet shecame into the eld as a young momentering the workforce to help herfamily. I started as a receptionistat a nancial planning rm, and Iknew next to nothing about theindustry. I thought it had to do withbudgeting, she said.But she quickly discovered a skill forgrasping nancial concepts. I reallyenjoyed helping people sift throughthe complexity of their situation andmake sense of it.This was especially valuable whenit came to working with women,and as a former stay-at-home mom,Dorion-Gray could identify withthem. A woman might come inafter losing her husband of 35 or40 years. Hes always managedthe nances, but now she has tounderstand all of it.Not only were the women copingwith nancial upheaval, but alsothe fear and grief that accompaniesa major life change. Dorion-Grayrecognized the importance ofthese emotions, and how learningto manage their own nancescould alleviate a womans feelingof helplessness. There are a lotof emotions that come with theseevents, and we deal with them, aswe talk about a realistic approach to

    nances, she said.Men who have recently retiredexperience similar emotionalupheaval. It comes from no longerbeing identied with your career,she said.In 1999, Gray faced a crossroads,when she decided to go theindependent route. I was executivevice president of a brokerage rm,but had been thinking about goingout on my own for about threeyears. To be really successful, Iknew I needed to choose betweenmanagement or independence and Isaw I could have more control overmy future and my time by goingindependent, she said.It was a scary decision. Shortlythereafter she was offered thechance to purchase an establishednancial services rm. That addeda lot more concern, but it was also atremendous opportunity. I wouldntbe where I am now if I hadnt takenthat risk, she said.After signing the papers on a Friday,Dorion-Gray didnt sleep for twodays, but when Monday morningarrived, she was ready. I put myhead down and said okay, now youhave to make it work. So I did,Dorion-Gray said.In the years since, her risk hasturned to reward, as shes steeredclients through three majoreconomic downturns. The rm hasgrown to ve advisors, includingDorion-Gray, along with a ve-member support team, and threeadditional professionals includingher husband who works onstrategic plans for both marketingthe company and as part of thecompanys overall managementteam and investment committee.In 2013, she plans to bring on oneto two additional advisors. Weveseen so much growth in the pastfew years and the need for ourcomprehensive planning based

    approach grows even greater everyday, she said.But she still loves helping womentake charge of their nances. Whileyounger couples often take a sharedapproach, its not uncommon forwomen, especially those 55 andolder, to feel insecure about theirnancial knowledge. You takeon roles in marriage and for thatgeneration, it typically meant thehusband was the major breadwinnerand handled the nances, she said.She sponsors a women-onlyquestion and answer session eachmonth, at Panera in Crystal Lake,on Tuesday morning between 9:30and 10:30 (dates and times areavailable on their web-site). In amixed group, women often dontask questions because they feelself-conscious, or they think theyshould already know something. Butthere are no dumb questions and weshouldnt shy away from knowingwhat money is all about.

    President: Tim Struthers

    Castle Bank offers deep roots, top talentts an old local-boy-makes-good story, andin the case of Tim Stru-

    thers, its true. As a highschool student, Strutherstook a part-time job in themailroom at the First Na-tional Bank in DeKalb, nowknown as Castle Bank.Thirty-two years later, Stru-thers is bank president.Hes just one of the manydedicated, knowledgeablebanking professionals atCastle Bank. We havedeep roots in the communi-ty and are locally managed,plus our company is drivento have talented people.Many of our employeeshave been here a long timeand do their jobs extremelywell, Struthers said.

    Castle Bank operates four-teen branches in Kane,Boone, DeKalb, Kendalland McHenry Counties.Its McHenry County loca-tions include branches inHarvard, Marengo and twoin Lake in the Hills. A $1billion bank, Castle Bank of-fers personal, small business,agriculture, and commercialbanking services.

    Weve been through anumber of cycles, good andnot so good, in the last ten

    years. Its important to be re-sponsive to changes, but itsalso important not to losesight of our core business,which is to be a local bankcommitted to support-ing our communities andhelping customers moveforward, with a high-levelof expertise, he said.

    Lumberyard operator MilesB. Castle founded the CastleBank in Sandwich in 1856.He ran both until his deathin 1900, but the bank con-tinued under the leadershipof a board that includedmembers of the Castlefamilya tradition that con-tinues to this day.

    In 1919, Castle Bank of-cially became The SandwichState Bank and joined the Il-linois State Banking system.In 1984, Sandwich Banco,the banks holding companyacquired the First NationalBank in DeKalb, followed byFirst State Bank of Harvardand The Bank of Yorkville.In 1999, the banks con-solidated under the originalname, Castle Bank.

    In 2002, Americas largestprivately owned bankingcompany, First NationalBank of Nebraska, Inc., a

    $17 billion asset bank withlocations in Illinois, Colo-rado, Iowa, Kansas, Ne-braska, South Dakota andTexas acquired Castle Bank.In 2010, Castle Bank becamea division of First Nationalof Nebraskas subsidiary, FirstNational Bank of Omaha.Established in 1857, FirstNational Bank of Omaha is inits sixth generation of familyownership.

    Like Castle Bank, FirstNational Bank of Omahais committed to customerservice and building strongcommunity. Were bigenough to offer all the toolsand expertise of a large bank,yet we offer local focus anddecision-making. Its a verynice balance, said Struthers.

    Castle Bank encouragescommunity involvement andthe banks Facebook pageshows recent efforts such asa day at Feed My StarvingChildren, participating inthe Belvidere Chili Cook-Off, supporting Small Busi-ness Saturday, and donating$5,000 to McHenry CountyPADS.

    A DeKalb resident, Struthersearned a Bachelor and Mas-ters in Business Administra-

    I

    e were started over a hundredyears ago, and over my 32 yearshere, Ive seen a lot of changes, butone thing that hasnt changed iswho we are, Struthers said.
