Steve Meagher has been named the new vice-president of sales for Peterson Manufacturing Company.
He succeeds Art Richardson, a well-known industry figure who is retiring after more than 41 years with the company.
No effective date has been announced for the move, as Meagher will be transitioning into his new role over the next several months. Richardson will stay on during this period to ensure a smooth transition of duties, the company announced.
“Steve brings a world of knowledge and experience to his new position,” said Don Armacost Jr., Peterson’s president and CEO. “With his dedication and proven management skills in all marketing and merchandising areas, we’re confident that Steve will guide the Peterson sales team for continued great success.”
Reimer Express Lines has awarded the 2008 Reimer Express Scholarship to Monica Cella of Westbank, B. C.
The Reimer Express scholarship has a value of $5,000 annually for a maximum of four consecutive years, up to a total of $20,000.
The scholarship is open to dependants of Reimer Express employees. Cella is the daughter of Claudio Cella, who is in his 25th year with Reimer Express and currently serves as the sales and operations supervisor at the Kelowna service centre.
Cella is the seventh recipient of the award and earned the scholarship through academic achievement, community involvement and participation in many extracurricular activities. Cella will attend the University of British Columbia in Kelowna this fall, seeking a bachelor of science degree.
She intends to pursue studies in ecology and microbiology and hopes to one day earn her master’s and doctorate degrees in these fields. •
