Geneva's FONA president recognized

Amy McDonald among Most Notable Women in Manufacturing

GENEVA – FONA International President Amy McDonald was named one of the most Notable Women in Manufacturing by Crain’s Chicago Business, the company announced in a news release.

FONA creates and produces flavors for the food industry.

FONA Founder and CEO Joe Slawek praised McDonald for being recognized as a top leader in manufacturing.

“This is such a great achievement, and highlights something many of us already know about Amy: Her focus on growth and passion are creating positive change,” Slawek stated in the release. “She’s leading the way not only for FONA, but for our wider community and industry. We’re thrilled for her.”

McDonald was one of 30 other honorees.

Crain’s noted in its feature, “As president, Amy McDonald has grown FONA to record revenue. In 2018, she oversaw the completion of a $14 million manufacturing and technology expansion at the company’s headquarters in west suburban Geneva.”

Crain’s also notes that in 2018 McDonald received a Great Place to Work for All Leadership Award.

She teaches executive leadership at the University of Wisconsin School of Business and has spoken at the Business Today International Conference and at the World Leaders Forum at Judson University in Elgin.
