Marmon Distribution President Gottschalk to Retire
 
Norman Gottschalk Jr. has announced his retirement as president of Marmon Distribution Services Inc., Butler, Pa., after 45 years of service to the company. Alan Wilkinson will be promoted to replace him, effective Jan. 31.

"I have been very fortunate to head a strong, successful company like Marmon Distribution Services. It has been fun to watch Marmon/Keystone and its affiliate companies mature and grow over the years," says Gottschalk. "It is also very comforting to know that a competent, experienced executive like Alan Wilkinson is in place to see that the team continues to grow and be successful."

Gottschalk joined Keystone Tubular Service Corp., later renamed Marmon/Keystone, as an accountant in 1968. He then progressed to the positions of accounting supervisor, assistant controller and controller. In 1984, he was promoted to vice president/controller of Marmon/Keystone. He was chosen to lead the company in 1989 as president, a position he held until being named president of Marmon Distribution Services in 2012.

Gottschalk has served on many metals industry boards and is a past chairman of the Metals Service Center Institute. In 1999, he was named Metal Center News’ Service Center Executive of the Year. His alma mater, Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, presented Gottschalk with the school’s Alumni Heritage Award for distinguished service and accomplishment in 2012.

Wilkinson will assume the position of president of Marmon Distribution Services upon Gottschalk’s retirement. Wilkinson began working for Marmon/Keystone in 1978, holding a variety of positions from the warehouse to inside and outside sales, operations manager, branch manager and regional manager. In 1999, he was named regional vice president of Marmon/Keystone. He was then promoted to vice president of Marmon Distribution Services in 2012.
