May 12, 2008 ― Solco Appoints David Weiner President
Solco Plumbing supply today announced that David Weiner has been promoted to the position of President of Solco.
He started his career at Solco Plumbing Supply in 1989 as its first management trainee. He has at various times held almost every position at Solco including shipping, receiving, warehouseman, counter salesperson, purchasing and trucking.
Weiner quickly advanced from there through senior level positions: from Purchasing Manager in 1994, to Director of Operations in 2001 to Vice President of Operations in 2005. He also helped open new branches in Bensonhurst and the Bronx, and helped modernize Solco with the Eclipse computer system.
graduated from Nassau community college in 1989 with a degree in business
management and a minor in marketing.
“It is with great personal pleasure that my son David is becoming president of Solco. He has contributed much to Solco‘s growth. David has helped both Stu and myself take a step backwards and I have enjoyed watching him and Solco blossom. I fully expect this to only be one more step towards his growth here,” said Stanford Weiner, vice president, owner of Solco.
“Although David started working at Solco as the son of an executive, he was started at the very bottom: in the warehouse loading and later driving our trucks. During his time here, he has consistently made his own way up through the rungs of management. Indeed in the 18 years David has been with Solco, he has held almost every middle and upper management position in the company. In each case he performed his duties competently and with originality and flair. We are all proud of him, and very gratified that we were able to promote our new president from within. He is well suited to lead Solco into the 21st century,” said Stuart Baker, CEO, owner of Solco.
