23-year company veteran Kevin Sigourney promoted to President; David Boyer to remain as CEO.
Twenty-three years after joining PROSOCO, Kevin Sigourney is taking over as president of the company, a Lawrence, Kan.-based manufacturer of specialty construction products approaching its 85th anniversary next year.
The promotion was announced on Aug. 21 by David Boyer, a member of the third-generation of the family-owned business, who is stepping down from the role of President but will continue serving as Chief Executive Officer.
After working as PROSOCO’s Customer Care Manager from 2000 through 2011, Sigourney was promoted to lead the company’s Consolideck line of concrete flooring chemicals, stains and cleaners as Product Manager. In 2017, he was promoted again to Vice President of Brand Integrity, a role in which he oversaw all aspects of the company’s sales and brand strategy operations.
As President, one of Sigourney’s responsibilities will be charting a course for future growth by aligning strategic goals with the company’s overarching mission and vision.
“I am humbled and honored to be leading the organization in this exciting new era,” Sigourney said. “PROSOCO is an incredible company and a great place to work. We are well respected in the industry not just because we produce great products, but because our people are passionate, professional, and knowledgeable.”
Walking away from the role of President, which Boyer held for 43 years, was made easier with the confidence and trust earned by the next generation of leadership.
“Though stepping down as president, I look forward to witnessing and contributing to our continued success and accelerated growth as PROSOCO’s Chief Executive Officer,” Boyer said. “PROSOCO is a unique company blessed with some of this industry’s best products backed by a talented and knowledgeable workforce. I take great pride in how far we’ve come and look forward to what the future holds.”
