Leadership transition will take place at Sukup Manufacturing

Charles E. Sukup, President of Sukup Manufacturing Co., is pleased to announce that on Feb. 1, 2020, and after 25 years, he will transition from Chair, President and CEO to Chairman of the Board.

His brother, Steve Sukup, who has been CFO and Vice President will become President and CEO. Although Charles will no longer be involved in day-to-day operations, he looks forward to being an ambassador for Sukup Manufacturing Co. and supporting its growth and success in sales and product innovation.

Charles reflected, “While growing up, I always knew that I would work in the family business and was proud to be the first degreed engineer for the company. Evidently Dad thought it would be cheaper to raise an engineer rather than hire one! I was one of the few students at Iowa State that knew exactly what I would be doing after graduation.”

Charles is now 65 years old, the same age as when his father transitioned from being president in 1995.
