EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT Katie Roseberry Night Shift Supervisor, Converting It’s all in the family for Katie – both her traditional family but also her work family. Her connections, like many at General Films, are generational. Family ties weave through GF and are passed down through parents or siblings. Katie’s stepmother Leann was a 19-year employee at General Films. When Leann retired for health reasons, she suggested to Katie, who was 19 at the time, that she should apply for the job. Without any hesitation, Katie jumped at the chance. In fact, Leann drove her to her interview. Katie was offered a position, and she happily accepted and has been a valued employee for GF for 14 years. “I feel like I have grown up right here at General Films. The people I work with I consider my family. I enjoy our work environment and the camaraderie. The mood is always upbeat, and the support I receive from my co-workers is something special.” Katie likes that she and all employees have direct and open access to management and departments like HR. They are always very responsive and helpful. Gus and Erin have worked hard and stayed on top of personnel issues like employee retention and training protocols, and that extra effort is noticed and appreciated. “Even the president, Tim Weikert, is accessible and in touch with the entire team. He cares about us, knows our names, and takes a genuine interest in what we are doing on the job and at home. He is always asking me how my stepmom is doing.” One of the most appealing benefits for Katie about working at GF is the 10-hour, 4-day work week that allows for a 3-day weekend. Katie says, “it provides more time for family and to just do the things that need to get done.” Katie looks forward to a long career at General Films. She appreciates the company and what they mean to her and her family. Katie is married, and they have four-legged family members. Rescue pups Storm- (husky) and Tyrion “Bubs” cockapoo (cocker spaniel poodle mix). Katie and her husband are heavily involved in the 501st Legion. She jokingly states that the 501st Legion is “bad guys doing good.” The 501st Legion is an international Disney and Lucas Film-affiliated charity group where members dress in authentic Star Wars costumes and volunteer to raise money for The Ronald McDonald House, Dayton Children’s, and the Cincinnati Center for Autism, to name a few. Katie receives great joy in seeing the smiles on the faces of the children they entertain and serve. BACK

EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT David Cathie-Atkins Day Shift Supervisor, Extrusion David grew up in the Phoenix, Arizona, area. He served in multiple branches of the US military, both active and reserve, for 11 years before transitioning to a federal & tribal law enforcement officer in Arizona. He then entered the private sector working at Abbott Nutrition for 10 years, starting in production and later elevated to production supervisor. While at Abbott, David was fortunate to see the country and experience different regions of the United States. One of the locations was Troy, Ohio, where he fell in love with the area and the people. Seizing the opportunity, David and his family moved to Troy in 2017 to work full-time at Abbott. Due to health reasons, David left Abbott and after a long recovery period, was ready to rejoin the workforce. Although he enjoyed large companies, he looked for an opportunity with a smaller and more intimate environment to work in. After doing a significant amount of research, David discovered General Films and the rest, as they say, is history. He brings the skills that he honed in the military and corporate America to GF, including discipline, leadership, people skills, and problem-solving, to name a few. David currently leads a team in the extrusion department. “I really like the challenge of the 2nd shift. We work more cohesively and independently, solving our own problems and navigating through challenges.” David states that many of the GF job requirements and skills are similar to Abbott's. However, the company environment at GF, the people, and the motivations are different. The company has an open and transparent environment while focusing on its people and customers. David sights a positive example of the company culture as the “Sunshine Committee,” which helps where and when necessary to make sure co-workers are taken care of in times of need. David is married and enjoys his growing family, which includes four sons, three daughters, ten grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, including their newly arrived-first granddaughter. Together they enjoy the outdoors, including kayaking and rolling down the highway on their Harley. David is also a member of the Improved Order of the Red Men in Troy and is especially active in their Alzheimer's research. BACK
