As stated earlier in the year - we’ve given Founder & CEO Debra Cherney the opportunity to share thoughts on any topic of her choice.  While many of them will be related to food safety, the one below is of excitement so please, read on!  


To our Cherney community consisting of customers, colleagues, and industry friends.  It is my extreme pleasure to share with you the announcement of Cherney’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO), Steve Kuchenberg, who officially starts with our organization on Monday, September 25th.  Steve's extensive experience within our industry brings a new level of competence and technical expertise to our organization and while I’m personally very excited for him to lead our organization into the future, our team at Cherney will soon see how his passion for doing the right thing for those around him will quickly pass onto you our valued customers.  Steve and I are in lockstep agreement about what actions will be taken to achieve our strategic vision for Cherney.  A very exciting time is ahead, welcome Steve! - Debra Cherney

In most businesses, we interact with the Customer Service department more than any other group. As a Customer Service Specialist (as they are at Cherney), the experience you create for your customers can play a key role in their decision to do business with you.  Here are a few items we at Cherney feel are important to building and maintaining customer relationships:

In the Spirit of Giving - Thank you!


With the holidays upon us, we tend to get into the spirit of giving!  Holiday shopping, baking treats to share with family and friends, and generally, presents galore!  This year, as in years past, the "Cherney Micro Family" has chosen a family within our community to assist this holiday season through the Salvation Army.  Our Training Room is beginning to fill with amazing generosity for this family and it is our pleasure to give them a celebration they will not soon forget!
