Industry Veteran Retires from Associated After 38 Years of Service to the Industry

Dave LeMaster

Effective March 31, 2015 Dave LeMaster, Vice President of Associated, announced his retirement after 38 years of service to the material handling and supply chain industries.

Starting his career in 1977 as a Sales Representative for the company’s Central Illinois Operation Dave has played an important part in Associated’s growth and success. Throughout his career, Dave has made contributions to Associated that have helped shape the organization and have positioned them well for the future.

“It is rare to find an individual who spends their entire career at one organization. It is also rare for an individual to directly contribute to an organization from the day they walk in the door to the day they walk out. Dave is an individual that truly projects the Company’s biggest asset, our ‘experience and expertise’. Any long term endeavor takes commitment. Dave was continually committed to the success of Associated throughout his career. For all of these reasons and more, we will miss Dave but wish him a happy and healthy retirement as he spends more time with his family enjoying things he never had enough time for during his professional career”, said Michael B. Romano, President/CEO of Associated.

In announcing his retirement Dave said, “I truly appreciate the efforts and support given by so many dedicated people throughout my journey with Associated.    It has been an incredible blessing to be part of such a great team”.
