Chuck and Sandy Scholl – CEO and CFO, Owners
Their story began in 1974 when Chuck first started working as an installer for the company. In 1980 he had the opportunity to purchase the company, which at the time consisted of one truck. He played the role of both installer and salesman while Sandy worked out of their home as the secretary and financial partner.
Over the years the company has evolved into one of the leading insulation contractors in central NY. In the beginning, their base was their home in West Winfield. Many years later they were located at Horatio St. in Utica until in 2006 when they made the move to River Rd. in Marcy.
Chuck is the CEO and is continuing his role as the visionary of the company, looking into new opportunities and uncovering the latest technology. Sandy is the CFO and continues to oversee the financial department.
They both enjoy many hobbies. Chuck spends his free time playing golf and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Sandy enjoys riding her horse and competing in State wide quarter horse shows. The couple’s four grandchildren keep them very busy.
Jennifer Keida – COO
The oldest of Chuck and Sandy’s four daughters, Jennifer runs the day to day operations. Jennifer started in the Connecticut branch in 2000, after college, other experiences and adventures. She began in sales and grew into the general manager’s position in CT. After making a decision, in 2003, to raise her family in central NY, she and her husband, Phil, moved their two daughters to the Mohawk Valley to join the Utica staff. Since then, she has moved to Sales Manager, to Executive VP and to her most current post, as COO.
Jennifer enjoys watching and supporting her daughters’ many interests and talents. She also contributes her time to the Mohawk Chamber of Commerce, where she is the current chair.

Jeff Reese– Sales Consultant
Jeff started in the construction industry in the early 1980’s. He started as a laborer, worked as a carpenter, cabinet maker, and when he left construction in the late 1990’s he was running commercial construction projects. Jeff then spent 10 years in the Insurance business starting in sales and spending the last 6 of those years in sales management. Jeff was not looking for a career change when he found Standard Insulating Co. but in Jeff’s words “Construction is where my heart is, and this company is trying to do the right things for the right reasons”.
