Force Control Industries announces the retirement of sales and marketing leader Stan Porter who will depart at the end of the year. Porter was a longtime fixture on the sales team, having held several sales positions over the past three-plus decades, including VP of sales & marketing, and most recently marketing manager. Mike Fox will take over Porter’s Midwestern sales territory, while Tony Stoner will assume his marketing responsibilities.
Porter started at Force Control in 1986, and has held various sales and marketing positions throughout that time. With a front row seat, he participated in the technology changes that reshaped the industry including the creation of the company’s first website along with each successive version and updates. In addition, he’s developed the published marketing materials, advertising campaigns, videos and more.
“Stan has guided us through the many technology changes which have dramatically changed the way we take our message to the marketplace,” said VP of Sales and Marketing Tony Stoner. “We wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement.”
