Sto® Corp., an innovative world leader in claddings, air barriers, coatings, and restoration systems, is pleased to announce that John McClellan has been named vice president of operations. In his new position, he will be responsible for overseeing workforce utilization, supply chain operations, and ensuring a safe manufacturing process. McClellan will replace John Yankovich, who is retiring after 17 years with Sto Corp.
McClellan brings a wealth of experience to his new position from a long career in both the military and the private sector. After serving as a Weapons/Engineering Officer in the United States Navy for five years, with deployments to the Persian Gulf and the Adriatic Sea, he transitioned to a successful career in the manufacturing industry, most recently working as vice president of operations at Temper Sealy International. Prior positions included plant manager at Owens Corning® and operations manager at Anheuser-Busch. McClellan is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
Yankovich believes his successor is an ideal fit for the job. “McClellan has been successful everywhere he’s been, and he’ll be successful at Sto,” said the outgoing VP of operations. “He has the discipline of a naval officer and a career’s worth of valuable experience.”
McClellan, likewise, speaks highly of his predecessor, “I am walking into a great situation because of the work Yankovich has done,” said the incoming VP. “He’s steered Sto through the supply chain issues of the last couple of years, and he successfully implemented StoCast production lines.”
