Howard tells me that his new position will be with Multistack. the leader in commercial industrial air chillers.
Kelly came to S&S in 2004 with plans to work with Brett Smith to create a communications and marketing department that was the quality level to be expected from an industry leader like S&S. This past summer the S&S 50th Anniversary was the crowning achievement to that goal and the team that works with Kelly.
”When I first arrived at S&S the plan was for me to create the service manuals, update the instruction sheet process and then start getting involved in communications and marketing. As they say, things change and the communications and marketing issues became as important as everything else. Having been a magazine editor in the past, it was second nature to understand the needs of media people and how to make their jobs easier when they deal with S&S. I am very lucky to have worked with such quality people as Bruce Tessmer, Angee Williams, Chad Baker, Kevin Sather, Carla Langyel and Shay Rihn. This is the team that will work with my replacement to continue on with the great work we did through the 50th.” said Howard Kelly.
“Howard has been an immense help to S&S Cycle and has elevated our media presence to a higher level then we have ever achieved in the past. I and the others here at S&S have enjoyed working with Howard and we will miss him, but I am in full support of his effort to embark on this new challenger outside our industry, and wish him success. Howard will continue to help us during this transition to make it as seamless as possible.” said, CEO George Smith. Smith has an agreement with Kelly to support S&S in a consulting role to assure fluidity for media needs and communications regarding S&S and Kelly will retain his contact information at S&S for easier media access.
