Steve Oslica, Executive Director
Steve Oslica is a Missouri native who spent the majority of his career in the field of oil and gas construction materials, most notably with Pittsburgh Corning Corporation (with manufacturing operations in Sedalia, Missouri) and H.B. Fuller Construction Products.
His industrial business experience lends itself to a parallel understanding of the business challenges experienced by a number of Hawthorn members. With over 25 years of global sales and marketing management experience, Steve was regularly working alongside large energy companies and their outside engineering contractors within North America, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Steve and his wife Anna returned to Missouri in 2015 after nearly eight years away. "I'm grateful for this appointment from our governor. It's an honor to be home and to be able to give back to my state."
Steve and Anna have two grown children, both educated at the University of Missouri, where they received both undergraduate and graduate level degrees. "We went to Pennsylvania. They stayed at Mizzou. We were not surprised."
Steve is a graduate of Culver Stockton College in Canton, Missouri where he was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. He and Anna reside in St. Louis with their two golden retrievers.
