PERSONNEL CHANGES AT PORTAGE ELECTRIC

Letter to Pepi Sales Representatives:

Good Day,

I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer. It is hard to believe that we are quickly approaching the middle of August.

I did want to reach out to everyone in regard to personnel changes that have occurred within our Sales Department here at Portage Electric. I believe you all are aware that Jim Petro retired June 30th after working 34 years with the company. Jim has certainly been an important asset to our sales efforts and his presence here will surely be missed.

Stepping into the position of Vice President of Sales is Ted Monty. Ted comes to Pepi with a wealth of sales and business experience. His last position prior to joining Pepi wasthe Business Development Manager for a global engineering company who specialized in process controls. Ted has a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and also holds an Executive MBA degree. With his past business experience, I am sure that you will all find Ted as a valuable member of our domestic and international sales efforts. Please join with me in welcoming Ted to Portage Electric.

I am also pleased to inform you that Mark Albright has been named to the position of Sales Manager for the company. Mark has been an integral member of our inside sales team for the past 6 years and has gained valuable knowledge of our products and our customers. Please join with me in congratulating Mark to his new position.

Very Truly Yours,
Portage Electric Products, Inc.
