Schwartz Stepping Down from Superior Uniform
Alan Schwartz, a longtime industry supplier executive and president of Superior Uniform Group Inc., recently announced plans for a three-year phased retirement, according to a news release.
“In his 42-year association with the company, Alan has been instrumental in its direction, success and progress,” said Michael Benstock, CEO of the company based in Seminole, FL. “We are fortunate to have had his leadership and, equally so, that he will have an important transitional role as we move forward.”
To ensure an “orderly succession and continuity of customer service,” Schwartz and the company have reached an agreement that will allow him to consult with company officials on a successively reduced schedule over the next three years. As a consultant to Superior Uniform, Schwartz also will continue to confer with many of the key customers that he was instrumental in developing during his tenure, the release said.
Schwartz said he was pleased with this arrangement that will allow him to downshift his pace of activities with the company. “My decision to retire emanated over the years from our comprehensive succession planning that is part of our strategic planning,” he said. “I am extraordinarily proud of what the Superior team has accomplished during my tenure, and am confident that the company will continue to successfully execute its strategies and grow shareholder value.” Click here for details.
