Please welcome aboard Katie Ann Santopolo, the newest member to Team Lindemann. Many of you already know Katie whose roots run deep in the Chimney Sweeping Industry. Her passion comes from the fact that her father, grandfather, and great grandfather have all owned their own successful chimney businesses for over 25 years.
Rob Lindemann, CEO of Lindemann Chimney Supply states "Katie represents a fourth generation Chimney Sweep who is very dedicated to helping fellow sweeps obtain their goals. She is greatly loved in this industry. We are honored to have her work for us".
She started her "official" career in the Chimney Sweeping Industry working as a customer service specialist for a chemical manufacturer back in 2009. This gave Katie the chance to look at the industry from the consumers' eyes and understand the issues and problems they have. After being with the company for a short 6 months, she was given the opportunity to be the first on-staff Certified Chimney Sweep through the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).
Jeff Wiles, President of Lindemann Chimney Supply is excited to bring Katie on board. "I look forward to the experience and insight that Katie brings with her. She is very motivated and dedicated to this industry. She will be able to help sweeps with all aspects of the business."
Katie is more than qualified to provide advice. In fact, her passion in life is helping others find solutions to their problems and helping them grow their business. She grew up in the industry and seen many changes and "gets it" when it comes to having a chimney sweeping business. She has kept up with industry issues and stayed in contact with close industry friends. When the opportunity surfaced to get back into the industry, she was happy that she was able to partner with Lindemann Chimney Co, a company that she has always loved. She looks forward to the journey ahead and meeting everyone along the way! To contact Katie, she can be reached at 518-428-1212 or click here to email her.
