Michael Flanagan has taken over as president of Weems & Plath. Flanagan, a business owner with a specialty in manufacturing, purchased the company from Peter Trogdon.
A statement noted that Flanagan is also an offshore sailor.
“I am excited and committed to continuing the tradition of the Weems & Plath name and the reputation this great company has built,” Flanagan said in the statement. “My top priorities are the customers and the quality of service we bring them, along with growing the business and offering the best products on the market."
Trogdon, according to the statement, will support the company and ensure a smooth transition.
“Michael has the vision and experience to grow the business,” Trogdon said. “I couldn’t be more confident that I am handing over the company to someone who can continue the success that was started 90 years ago by our founder, Capt. P.V.H. Weems.”
