STURM WELDING, INC.’s employees are mostly men and its customers are predominantly men. It is important to understand how this obstacle effects business relationships. In the man’s world of STURM WELDING, INC., knowledge is power. As its leader, Shawn Patricia Dollar has learned to understand her customers’ requirements and directs her staff to provide its clients with the best personalized solutions to their individual needs.
Experience and instinct has taught her that sometimes it is necessary to step up and assert herself as the leader and other times to step back and allow the “man to man” relationships take their course.
When Mrs. Dollar took the helm in 2008, a door opened for eligibility into the SBA’s 8(a) program. This is a program with rigorous qualifications and takes stamina and dedication.
