Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company announces the election of Matthew R. Stovern as president of the corporation.
Stovern currently serves on the board of directors for the Scale Manufacturers Association (SMA) and Webb City Bright Futures, a non-profit organization which helps local school children, and is involved in youth athletics throughout the community. Stovern is the husband of Aston Perry Stovern, granddaughter of Cardinal Scale founder W.H Perry. The Stoverns have three children, Rylee, Tressa, and Maxwell, which will hopefully represent the fourth generation of the family-owned business.
Stovern began his career at Cardinal Scale in 1998 working in the Customer Service Department and ascended to various production management positions and plant manager. He has served as vice-president of operations since 2011.
Cardinal Scale President David Perry will retire at the end of June 2015, ending an over 50-year career with the company that has seen weighing technology advance from mechanical weigh-beams to digital scales.
“I have made many friends during my tenure and will surely miss my co-workers I have known during the years,” said Perry. “I thank all of our employees who have made Cardinal Scale the vibrant, healthy, and profitable company that it is today.”
“I am pleased to announce that Matt Stovern will take over my role as president of Cardinal Scale,” said Perry. “This transition will go smoothly, since Matt and I have been working together to assure that end result. I am confident that as I leave, Cardinal Scale will remain in good hands with Matt’s guidance and the support of our employees.”
