ABC Keystone Staff Transitions

Regrettably for us, Julina Greineder, our Director of Communications, resigned from her position at ABC in early January. Julina and her husband, David, have a young daughter, and they believe it is time that Julina be a full time mom! Julina started as P.R. Coordinator fresh out of college in 2004, and then earned a promotion to Director of Communications in 2014. She worked closely with the Excellence in Construction Committee and Workforce Development Committee. She credits her experience at ABC with helping her grow both personally and professionally.

Julina shared, “I greatly enjoyed the interactions with members over the years - they were always professional and kind. I will never forget what they taught me about leadership.”  

While we will miss her terribly and thank her for her valuable service, we fully understand that family must come first, and we respect her wishes to devote more time to raising her daughter.

Fortunately, we have a strong bench in our current Communications and Events Coordinator, Kristi Pronovost. Kristi has accepted the position of Director of Communications, and will assume that role when Julina leaves on January 27th. Kristi shares, “This past year at ABC Keystone has been a very enjoyable experience. Meeting members at events has been one of the highlights of my year. We will all miss Julina, and I have appreciated her mentorship and guidance.”

In reflecting on our current structure, we have determined not to backfill Kristi’s position as Communications & Events Coordinator when she assumes the role of Director of Communications. Instead, we will move Julina’s EIC responsibilities over to the Events Department, under the capable management of Barbara Holtzapple. In addition, we will make the other shifts in responsibilities necessary to continue to deliver the best possible member service, while working to “lean up” the organization and achieve our collective goal of a positive net income.
