Pierre Goral, President and Founder of SGC, died on February 12th 2004, after a short fight with cancer. His passing deeply affected everyone of us at SGC, as he was the ball of fire that ignited our imaginations. He taught us to think big, he encouraged us to be the best we could be, and he motivated us to higher levels of work ethics. His passion for the business that he loved will be missed by all of us. The support and encouragement that SGC has received from our many customers around the world are testaments to Pierre's impact on the communications industry.
I worked next to Pierre for nearly 30 years at SGC. Pierre was the "face" of SGC and I was his silent, but very active, business partner, as well as his wife. I was involved in corporate decisions on all levels and managed the company and employees on a daily basis. I have now assumed the leadership role of SGC and will continue to run the company with the vision and goals that Pierre had.
We have a team of skilled and dedicated people at SGC, and we have the knowledge to design and manufacture equipment for the HF market that exceeds the commonplace. The company will continue to develop new products, and improve our quality and customer service. SGC will remain an industry leader, and I am confident that it will go forward under my direction. I look forward to working with our customers, vendors and industry friends.
