Linda Gillette is vice president of Pearl Technologies Inc., a Savannah, N.Y., supplier of components used alongside film extrusion, such as punches, perforators, gusset boards, bubble guides and bubble cages.
Her father, who worked in manufacturing, and her mother, who raised her children at home, instilled the values of a well-rounded person, she said.
Gillette graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y. This education, combined with her leadership skills, gave her good background to assume later supervisory positions
