Crystal Exec Recognized as Rising Star

February 18, 2013

Isabella Leung, Crystal Window & Door Systems' human resources department manager, was recently honored with a Queens “Rising Star” Award. Presented by the Queens Courier and Queens Business publications, the award recognizes leaders from the business, non-profit and government sectors under 40 years of age whose efforts are positively impacting the economy and quality of life in New York City’s second most populous borough.

Leung is responsible for compensation, benefits, hiring, training and compliance issues for more than 300 employees at Crystal’s New York headquarters and factory, and also provides guidance for Crystal’s affiliated manufacturing and sales offices in other regions of the country.  Leung is credited with introducing a broad array of initiatives to enhance employment and manage costs more efficiently.

“I am honored to receive this prestigious recognition,” Leung notes. “I wish to thank all of those involved in selecting me for the award. I also wish to thank my department employees and my fellow coworkers at Crystal Windows, since this honor would not have been possible without their support, assistance and dedication.” 

Leung is the second Crystal employee to receive this recognition. Steve Chen, executive vice president at the window and door manufacturer, was a “Rising Star” recipient in 2009.
