A Very Well-Deserved Pat on the Back

By Paul Bieber

Okay, I am starting from a prejudiced position. No doubt about it. Nonetheless, I want you to read this blog and know that it is all true and my prejudices are not showing up here.  Prejudices can be both good and bad; this is one of the good ones.  You see, Key Communications is very near and dear to my heart–a fact of which I am very proud.

By now you have read the 50th-anniversary issue and learned about the history of Key Communications, the publisher of USGlass.  You have learned that Deb Levy invested everything she had in reinvigorating this oh-so-important magazine for our trade.  Deb is mild-mannered, very polite and genteel.  But she is a true entrepreneur.  She has taken many risks to bring needed information to our industry and to grow her company.   

Yes, it’s her company, but we all feel it’s ours, too.  All of the writers, bloggers and contributors feel this is our company.  The editors of the various magazines all feel it is our company.  Everyone connected with USGlass and its sister publications feel it is our company.  This week, in Atlanta for the GlassBuild show, Deb and her team are celebrating the 50th anniversary of USGlass.  I can’t make it there this time and I just wanted to publicly share my thoughts about our company.  

Congratulations to everyone at Key Communications.  You deserve it.
