FLUSHING, NY, February 11, 2013 – The New York City business community continues to recognize the achievements and promise of Crystal Window & Door Systems’ top management. Isabella Leung, the company’s Human Resources Department Manager, was one of several notable individuals to recently receive the Queens “Rising Star” Award. The “Rising Star” Award recognizes outstanding young leaders from the business, non-profit and government sectors under 40 years of age whose efforts are having a positive impact on the economy and quality of life in New York City’s second most populous borough.

Isabella Leung (c.), Crystal Window & Door Systems’ HR Manager, receives Rising Star Award from Queens Courier founder and publisher Vicki Schneps (l.) and Queen Borough President Helen Marshall (r.).

"I am honored to receive this prestigious recognition," said Isabella Leung. "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 co-workers at Crystal Windows, since this honor would not have been possible without their support, assistance and dedication."

Ms. Leung is responsible for compensation, benefits, hiring, training, and compliance issues for over 300 employees at Crystal´s New York headquarters and factory, and she also provides guidance for Crystal´s affiliated manufacturing and sales offices in other regions of the country.

She also assists in providing management direction to the company’s accounting operations.

The "Rising Star" Award program is championed by the Queens Courier and Queens Business publications, major weekly news periodicals that serve the 2.2 million residents and tens of thousands of businesses in the New York City borough of Queens. Ms. Leung is not the first Crystal employee to receive this recognition. Crystal´s Executive Vice President, Steve Chen, was a "Rising Star" recipient in 2009.
