Alford has a Bachelor of Science in management along with her Lean Six Sigma Executive Black Belt Certification. Additionally, this complements her efforts as the PVF Roundtable’s president role obtained in January of 2020.
“I am pleased to announce Sara’s promotion to president,” said Newmans Valve CEO Steven Mines. “Sara has been instrumental in the company’s growth over the past four years. Through her strategic focus, operational expertise, and commitment to the company, she has been an exceptional leader. I look forward to reaching new levels of success and growth with her increased involvement in strategic planning.”
Since joining Newmans Valve, Alford has been promoted multiple times in recognition of the talent and capabilities that she brings to the company. She joined Newmans Valve in 1999 as a project contract administrator, and was promoted to corporate operations manager in 2006. In 2016, Alford was promoted to general manager.
“I am excited and honored to transition into this new leadership role,” Alford said. “As we continue to execute our growth strategies, I will remain focused and committed to maintaining our strong position in the industrial distribution market. In my expanded role, I look forward to continuing to contribute to the growth and success of the company.”
As president, Alford will continue to bring best practices to all segments of the company, as well as implement the company strategy.
