“Stan is a Wisconsin native and a great fit with our people-centric culture at Barry-Wehmiller and PCMC,” said Sullivan. “I’m excited to have him join our team, especially during this milestone 100th anniversary year for PCMC.”
Blakney brings to the role 20-plus years of senior leadership experience in manufacturing, which includes domestic and international operations expertise. He most recently served as COO at Goss International, a leading worldwide producer of web offset presses and finishing systems.
PCMC employs more than 700 team members within the US. Blakney will transition leadership responsibilities from Steve Kemp, who will retire at the end of February after 38 years of service to PCMC.
“I’m incredibly grateful for Steve’s leadership, integrity and coach-like approach, which has allowed PCMC to re-establish itself as a premier North American manufacturer since joining the Barry-Wehmiller family,” said Sullivan.
