Networking is helping me launch my career, share ideas, grow professionally, and strengthen business relationships. Just this past month, I was offered my dream job thanks to the doors opened to me through networking. It has taught me that there is no reason to settle for a career that is not benefitting my professional growth, and I know it can do the same for you. If you're looking for inspiration to advance your career, Kirk spent 30 years of his career with DuPont, where he had been a member of its senior manage- ment. That was followed by 12 years leading Inter- mountain Circuit Supply, which was later purchased by IEC USA in 2012. Kirk retired from IEC and the PCB industry in 2021. In announcing his passing, IEC released the following statement: "As we move through our lives, there are those unique individuals who make a monumental impact in just their very presence and ability to make us feel cared for, at ease, and important. For those of us who had the pleasure of working with him at IEC, we experienced that Kirk was one of those people. There are no words, and not enough letters in the alphabet to convey how much we care for Kirk and his lovely wife Judy, nor to illustrate how wonderful a per- son Kirk was." The company noted his encour- agement to his associates, his kind and gentlemanly ways, and "the twin- kle in his eye, matched only by his sideways grin." Thinking about Kirk "always brings an avalanche of happy memories, and in this moment, tremendous emo- tion of a loss of one of the greats." Funeral arrangements are pending from Kiesinger Funeral Services Inc., 255 McAlpine St., Duryea, Pennsylvania. More details will follow on the IEC LinkedIn page.
