His humble and effective leadership earned him respect. The day he passed away the industry lost a unique and important voice., we recognize Michael Elenz, Schwebel’s vice-president, manufacturing, as our 2012 Operations Executive of the Year, for his dedication to the industry. Elenz credits his team, his mentors and his service in the military for what he has accomplished.
And he thanks the Schwebels for treating him like part of the family. I could see that part of Joe lives on in Paul, Lee and other members of the Schwebel family and in people like Mr. Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well, and at Schwebel Baking Co., consistently achieving the highest level of quality often comes from experience. Getting on the day shift at the flagship facility often requires decades of experience on the production line, according to Michael Elenz, vice-president of manufacturing.
For his industry and community leadership, as well as his company's continuing success, he will be inducted into the Baking Hall of Fame at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Society of Baking (ASB). He was a long-time member of the American Bakers Association (ABA), serving on its board of directors and committees.
He also sat on the boards of AIB International and Quality Bakers of America.
As he walks through the plant, he routinely points out how long many of his veteran bakers have worked for the company.
"He was a longtime advocate for the wholesale baking industry," said Joe's son Lee Schwebel, vice-president of marketing for the bakery, "a champion of all the industry's causes, as well as a driving motivational force to make sure goals were attained and missions fulfilled to help wholesale baking grow and prosper." Although Joe Schwebel graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School with a thesis about problem solving, Lee Schwebel recalled that his father often said, "You don't learn a bakery business out of a book.
Joe Schwebel loved to tell the story about when he returned to the family bakery in 1960 as a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and asked his grandmother, Dora Schwebel, where his office was. Schwebel, whose husband passed away in 1928, raised six children on her own and helped feed the people of Youngstown, OH, during the Great Depression. “He would sit and listen to a lot of ideas, and at the end, he had the ability to bring all of them together and move forward with a plan,” Paul said. For 44 years, the brothers shared major business decisions.
She had a no-nonsense approach to life and told Joe the company had done just fine over the years without him. Paul and Joe were opposite in business roles yet totally complementary in results. Those roles, responsibilities and relationships continue with other family members in the business.
Joe was an active leader in the baking industry as well as with the local community.
He was instrumental in establishing the Grain Foods Foundation.The legacy today lives on in the third and fourth generation of family members who work at the company, but nearly everywhere, there are reminders of the past.
