[Torrington, CT, April 3, 2017] Industry innovator and distributor of masonry products and stone work, O&G Industries Masonry Division announced the award honoring Kara Oneglia, Vice President for “Best Supporting Woman in the Role of Business” from the United Way of Northwest Connecticut.
Acknowledging Kara, the Women’s Leadership Committee of the United Way chose to honor her position as Vice President managing all aspects of the Masonry Division including sales, production, materials handling, and delivery.
Kara credits her success to the lessons she learned from her father, Robert when he encouraged her to become involved. Though he died when she was only 27, it was his guidance that gave her the confidence and the tools needed to carry on his legacy. Kara leads by example, treating others with respect while maintaining professionalism as a woman and business leader in the community.
O&G takes pride in supporting the community, such as Kids Play, the Warner Theater, and the Harwinton Consolidated Community playground to just name a few. “It is clear that Kara’s role in business sets her apart as a very strong leader, and she sets high standards in giving to the community as well!,” stated Cailin Cerruto, committee co-chair.
“To receive this award and be associated with such an exceptional group of empowered women from the Women’s Leadership Committee of the United Way is a privilege,” Kara remarked.
