In Memoriam: Palintest General Manager, George Belarski
Erlanger, KY (December 1, 2011) – It is with great sadness that Palintest announces the passing of its U.S. General Manager, George Belarski. Belarski died October 24 in Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 65.
“George was one of those characters, who by his energy, enthusiasm and professionalism was fun to work with while keeping everyone focused on the business’ goals,” said Palintest President, David Sidlow. “He believed passionately in developing the Palintest product range in the U.S. market. He is sadly missed by all at Palintest, but we shall remember him with a huge amount of respect and affection.”
Belarski studied science and pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pa.) and was a Vietnam War veteran in the U.S. Navy. He worked for several companies before joining Palintest in 2005 as Regional Sales Manager.
“George’s work ethic was to always be fair to our customers. Treat them in business the way you would want to be treated. He succeeded at that,” said Palintest Customer Services Manager, Terri McHugh. “He was more than a boss, he was a good friend.”
