Date:11/7/2008

CHICAGO, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Easter Seals elected Missouri resident Kent Schien to its international board of directors, during the board's recent meeting.

"Kent is a passionate advocate for individuals with disabilities, first as a parent whose son benefited from Easter Seals services and as a volunteer leader," said James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals. "He is a dedicated board member, donor and fund raiser."

Schien is the chief executive officer of Innoventor Engineering, Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri, a company he founded in the basement of his home in January 1996, and now includes a multi-disciplined team of over 80 engineers, supporting customers in multiple industries. He has led his company to be a four-time recipient of the "St. Louis Region Top 50 Company" award. In 2007, Schien received the "Missouri Small Business Person of the Year" award issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration. He is a long time member of the Missouri State Board for the Easter Seal Society (ESS) and has been involved with the ESS since 1986.

Innoventor is the largest contributor to Easter Seals' St. Louis Walk With Me event, raising more than $40,000 annually. In 2004, Schien was honored as Exceptional Parent of the Year, by Exceptional Parent Magazine, at a St. Louis Cardinals' pre-game ceremony.

"Alan and I have enjoyed being a part the Easter Seals family for many years," says Schien. "This relationship has taught me many aspects about people that I may not have ever had the opportunity to learn without my son, Alan. This organization has helped me recognize the significance of helping others. I have brought those values to Innoventor, and as a result, giving back to our community is an integral part of the Innoventor culture."

Schien holds a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois. He earned his Master's Degree in Engineering Management and a Graduate Certificate in Technological Enterprise, from Washington University in St. Louis. He has been active on the University of Illinois Engineering School's Mechanical and Industrial Board of Directors since 1997.
