LA MIRADA, CA – E.T. Horn Co., a distributor, manufacturer and marketer of specialty chemicals and ingredients, has announced the promotion of Bob Ahn to President of the Industrial Groups and Vince Anderson to Vice President of the Coatings and Building Materials Group.
According to E.T. Horn President Jeff Martin, the industrial side of the company’s business accounted for 56 percent of its gross profits in 2008 and continues to be a stable and reasonably fast-growing sector.
“Ahn’s skills in managing principal and customer relationships have helped to drive the growth of our Coatings Group for more than a decade,” said Martin. “His straight-forward leadership skills, diplomatic style and innovative methods make him well suited for the challenges ahead.”
Ahn was previously Vice President of Sales for the Coatings & Buildings Materials Group. He started with E.T. Horn in May 1996.
Martin said Anderson’s “highly organized methods” and “tenacious business attitude” have been the key to successfully managing many industrial coatings accounts. Anderson hopes to build on that success.
