Fireside Chat Series – Member Story

June 11 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $150.00

Welcome to the Third and final of our Fireside Chat series, intimate evenings featuring an in-depth conversation with a Chicagoland business leader facilitated by an EFBC Strategic Partner. Our Fireside Chats are limited to just 40 participants to generate conversation and connections that extend a level deeper.

Join us on Tuesday, June 11th at Medinah Country Club to share in the journey and the leadership lessons of one of EFBC’s own. Join Strategic Partner George Karavattuveetil for a conversation with EFBC member Jim Armbruster of ATMI Precast and Quantum Forum. Jim chose not to join his family’s business as the fourth generation, eventually becoming a family business owner himself. After over five decades, learn why he values security above all else and seeks to guide his team to share in that value even as he steps back from the day-to-day operations of ATMI.

“Owning a business is never a straight path and my journey took more twists than most, from walking away as a fourth gen to bankrupting my first company to building what we have accomplished at ATMI. In retrospect, it is creating security that I now see as the greatest accomplishment.” – Jim Armbruster
