Maintains organizational continuity and people-centered leadership

Gerardine began her career as a social worker committed to helping people reach their full potential. In 1979, Gerardine founded Cirtronics Corporation. She knew that Cirtronics could be the vehicle to not only serve customers, but also to provide people with quality jobs.

Based on the belief that ordinary people can do extraordinary things when given the opportunity, Gerardine has always been unique in her approach to building teams. She focused on hiring people who exemplified Cirtronics values, and adapted positions to match their individual gifts. This ongoing philosophy has resulted in a strong, team-based environment benefitting from both the natural talents of each individual while providing each employee opportunities to learn and grow.

From its inception, Gerardine imbued Cirtronics with the mission “to serve and continuously improve under the Do Unto Others philosophy.” In 2002, Gerardine transitioned Cirtronics to an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) to share the company’s success directly with employees.

Over the years, Gerardine has served the community outside of the company through her board participation including New Hampshire Catholic Charities, Business Industry Association (BIA) of New Hampshire, New Hampshire Community Loan Fund, Vested for Growth and Rivier University Board of Trustees.
