As Metalmaster grew over the years, in 1994 a new entity, Sno Gem Inc. was developed and shortly thereafter Kozial joined the Smeja umbrella of companies in 1998 as the company’s Accounting Manager. As the company grew, so did Kozial and his ever-increasing responsibilities. Kozial became Comptroller and then Vice President of Finance and Personnel. Now in his new position, Kozial will be actively involved in the management of the various companies’ operations, financial management, human resources and strategic management. As the Smeja family looks to the future and their continued growth in various markets, Kozial will play a key role in the development of their newest divisions.

The Smeja entities currently include six companies and most recently, Limitless Innovations Inc. was added to the umbrella. Michael V. Smeja, principal, said, “We are extremely proud of David and his achievements. He has been with us for over 17 years and grown in multiple positions, that says a lot about his character.”

Daniel F. Smeja, principal, said, “We are excited about the enthusiasm, energy, and positive attitude that David has always brought to our work environment, and look forward to him applying that to his new position.”

Kozial was born in Des Plaines and then moved to McHenry County, and attended Marion Central High School. He earned his undergraduate degree and in 1993 his MBA from Northern Illinois University. Additionally Kozial earned his CMA prior to joining Metalmaster. Before his tenure with Metalmaster, Kozial became a Financial Analyst for Sundstrand Corp, a Fortune 500 Defense Contractor. Kozial continues to be a long-time resident of McHenry County where he enjoys playing golf and spending his free time with his wife of 16 years Patty, three children and three grandchildren.
