Lisa Scheller

Lisa is currently the chairman and president of Silberline Manufacturing Company.  She took over the running of the company which was founded by her grandparents following the death of her brother.  Silberline makes a key ingredient in paints and coatings and employs more than 600 people on three continents; including 160 in Pennsylvania.  It is the only certified woman-owned business of its kind in the world.

In 2011, alarmed by a tax increase in Lehigh County, she ran for and was elected to the Lehigh County Board of Commissioners where she successfully led efforts to cut taxes every year.   She also was a strong advocate for spending restraint, job creation, ending special interest giveaways, and increasing government transparency.

In 2018, after remaining clean and sober for 36 years, Lisa publicly shared her story of drug and alcohol addiction for the first time in an effort to raise awareness that addiction can happen to anyone and recovery is possible to anyone who embraces it.

Lisa also founded Hope & Coffee in 2018.  It is a coffee shop and meeting place that seeks to bring persons recovering from alcohol and drug dependency back into the job market.
