Allen Lund Company Announces Promotion of Shaun Leiker and Billy Pangonis; Bob Rose and Lenny Sciarappa Comment
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - All eyes are on Allen Lund Company’s (ALC) Orlando, Florida, office as two central members of its leadership team are entering new roles. Stepping into the role of Manager of ALC’s Special Projects Division is Shaun Leiker, while Billy Pangonis succeeds him as the new Manager of ALC’s Orlando team.
“It’s with sincere appreciation that I would like to thank the ALC executive team for the confidence they are placing in me with this promotion,” says Leiker. “Without everyone’s dedication in following Allen’s mantra of Customer, Company, Office, this amazing opportunity that we all now have in front of us would not have been possible. I am excited to take on this challenge, working with Bob Rose to help guide every office on this new journey, creating more opportunities for growth and advancement.”
Leiker began his time with ALC in 1994, assisting in expanding a produce department in Orlando. In 1995, he took over the lead role in the established Orlando refrigerated department, earning a promotion to Assistant Manager of the Orlando office in 1999, and to Manager in 2011.
Bob Rose, Vice President of National Sales, commented on Leiker's recent appointment.
“We are so fortunate to have Shaun Leiker accept this new position. Shaun always puts his customers first and does such a great job communicating with all our offices; he’s the perfect fit. I’ve known Shaun for over 27 years, and he has an energy and zest for knowledge that is unmatched. I look forward to seeing what Shaun will do over the next few years in this new role for ALC,” states Rose.
In addition to Leiker, ALC also appointed Billy Pangonis as the new Manager of its Orlando team.
“I am so grateful to the executive team for placing so much trust in me,” Pangonis adds. “It is such a great honor to follow Bill Bess and Shaun in leading the Orlando and International teams. I am excited to take on this new challenge with an amazing group of people. It will be so great to see what we can accomplish together.”
Pangonis began his career with ALC in 2003 as an intern, and just after a few months became a full-time broker’s assistant, according to a press release. His leadership skills played a large role in his promotion to Assistant Manager in August 2011.
“For the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Billy as the Assistant Manager of our Orlando office,” Vice President of Sales and Operations, Lenny Sciarappa, comments. “He is hard-working, analytical, and operates using the ALC mantra of Customer, Company, Office. During his interview with the executive team, Billy did a terrific job describing his vision and plan to move the office forward. Billy is fully committed to getting the job done, and I have all the confidence in him that he will succeed.”
Congratulations to both Shaun Leiker and Billy Pangonis as they enter their new roles!
