THIEL’s Gornik Wins Honor
THIEL Audio announced Monday that its co-founder and president, Kathy Gornik, will soon be presented with an award from the Bastiat Society, a South Carolina-based non-profit organization that advocates free market philosophy in the business world.
Gornik, along with Securities and Exchange Commission head Paul Atkins, will be the inaugural recipients of the Bastiat in Business Award. The winners were announced last June, but Gornik and Atkins will receive their awards at a reception in Charleston, S.C., on April 5.
Gornik co-founded THIEL in 1977 and has remained with the company ever since. She chaired the Consumer Electronics Association’s board from 2002 to 2003.
