Industrial Department PromotionNovember 20, 2018
It gives us great pleasure to announce the promotion of Tom Panko to Manager of the Industrial Department. Tom joined Pacemaker March 7th, 2011 and has extensive experience in management as well as inside and outside sales. He also owned and operated several sucessful businesses. Tom graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1992. Congratulations to Tom in his new role; we all wish him continued success!
Brian Snyder joined Pacemaker Steel and Piping on July 9th 1978, just a few months after earning his Bachelors of Science degree in Industrial Distribution from Clarkson University. Over the last 40 years Brian has held numerous positions from sales, purchasing agent, manager trainee and manager. After successfully managing the department for many years Brian was promoted to Vice President-Industrial Department in 2012.
Brain announced his retirement some time ago, but just couldn't bring himself to leave. Lucky for us, Brian will remain at Pacemaker in an advisory role and continue to mentor Tom and support him in his new role. This will allow Tom to take over the day-to-day management of the department and create a seamless transition for when Brian leaves.
Brian has always been dedicated and loyal to Pacemaker and his customers. However, he is looking forward to his well deserved retirement. Brian has our deepest gratitude for his many years of tireless work here at Pacemaker.
