MARMON-9-6-13September 2013 - After 45 years of service to the company, Marmon Distribution Services, Inc. president Norman Gottschalk Jr. (left) has announced his retirement effective January 31, 2014. Current vice president of Marmon Distribution Services Alan Wilkinson (right) has been selected as Gottschalk Jr.’s successor.

"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 Jr. "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."

In 1968 Gottschalk Jr. joined Keystone Tubular Service Corporation, later renamed Marmon/Keystone, as an accountant. 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. Gottschalk Jr. was chosen to lead the company in 1989 as president, a position he held until being named president of Marmon Distribution Services, Inc. in 2012.

Gottschalk Jr. has served on many metals industry boards through the MSCI and NASPD, and is a past chairman of the MSCI. In 1999 he was named Metal Center News’ Service Center Executive of the Year. His alma mater, Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, presented Gottschalk Jr. with the school’s Alumni Heritage Award for distinguished service and accomplishment in 2012. A Magna Cum Laude graduate, Gottschalk Jr. holds a degree in accounting. He and his wife, Patricia, reside in Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania. They have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.

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

Wilkinson obtained a bachelor's in marketing and management from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, and has completed MSCI's Strategic Metals Management program. He currently serves on the MSCI Board of Directors. Wilkinson and his wife, Jean, reside in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, and have three children and one grandchild.
