Note From Tim Jahnke Of Elkay Manufacturing Former Boss

Oct 13, 2008


I had the opportunity to work with Ken Saddler for several years while with Newell Rubbermaid Corp.  For two of those years Ken functioned as CFO of Anchor Hocking Specialty Glass Company while I was President of that business unit.  Ken was a key ingredient to the team that turned AHSG into a growing, profitable division for the corporation. 


Ken's strengths include his technical skills in Finance, but more importantly he is a well rounded business person.  Our Sales and Marketing teams, our Operations professionals all looked to Ken to be an important part of their respective teams.  He sees the "whole picture".  For me Ken played a key "right hand" role.  No decisions were made without Ken's input and guidance. 


Ken offers great experience and judgment for companies looking for leadership and technical support.
