Sharonville Chamber of Commerce 2014 Business Person of the Year

Steve Berke, CEO and President of Cincinnati Sub-Zero, was awarded the 2014 Business Person of the Year Award by the Sharonville Chamber of Commerce. This award is presented to a member of the Sharonville Chamber who has demonstrated a clear vision and leadership, and has contributed to growth, as well as demonstrated good business practices.

Steve began his career at Cincinnati Sub-Zero while in high school, helping his father at home assembling heated blankets to treat hypothermia. Inquisitive and intrigued by technology, he significantly increased production by building an "assembly line" which laid the foundation for the future success of Cincinnati Sub-Zero.

After college, Berke joined the CSZ team and worked in almost every area of the organization. His business philosophy centers on enjoying one's work. To ensure that's a reality, CSZ has implemented casual Fridays, participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the ALS Foundation, and created a "Wall of Life" with photos of individuals whose lives were saved with a CSZ product. The entire team recites the company's Mission and Vision at every meeting as a reminder of their purpose. He values honesty, authenticity, dependability, and determination. But, he believes there is one thing that will set you apart, trust.
