I began working for the Akron Bearing in 1994. For the past several years I have worked as an outside sales rep in the eastern counties of Ohio. I am a lifelong resident of northeast Ohio and graduate of the University of Akron.
Hello, my name is Libby Fickes. I grew up in Firestone Park and graduated from St. Vincent St. Mary High School & attended the University of Akron.
I started my career at Akron Bearing in 2004 as inside sales representative. I later became a stock holder, and was elected to the Board of Directors in 2006. I assist Tony (Mike) Falatok with his outside sales territories as well as the purchasing department.">
I’ve worked at Akron Bearing, it seems, all my life. In high school I would help count inventory, empty trash cans, and weed. While in college, I aided shipping/receiving as well as filing for my mom (Kathie). I came back to Akron Bearing just as they were finishing the building addition (2001), became a shareholder soon after, and was elected to the Board of Directors in 2006. I now work in accounting, sitting between my mom and Aunt Sue.
In my spare time I enjoy video gaming, helping a good friend run a local gaming/artist convention (Con on the Cob), playing in a kickball league, and going to craft shows with my mom.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Business Management from the University of Phoenix.">
