Christy Weeber has been promoted to EVP and chief financial officer and Norbert Maleschitz is promoted to EVP and chief operating officer.

All three will continue to report directly to CEO and president Chris Pruitt.

Stanislawczyk takes on a newly created position that involves oversight of all the transportation sales segments including original equipment, aftermarket, private and proprietary brands and branch operations.

He will also have oversight of all industrial segments including motive and reserve power.

Stanislawczyk joined East Penn in 1992 and most recently was senior VP for transportation sales and diversified products and group VP of sales for private and proprietary brands and diversified products. 

Weeber, in her new job, will further focus on developing financial and corporate strategic priorities and risk management.

She will continue to oversee East Penn’s legal and IT departments, in addition to her current oversight of general accounting and finance, accounts payable, accounts receivable, credit, and costing. 

Weeber joined the company in 2011 as manager of internal audit. Before becoming CFO, Weeber was senior VP of finance. 

She is also a former audit senior manager at accounting firm KPMG, specializing in manufacturing. 

Maleschitz’s new position is in addition to his previous duties as chief technology officer, managing East Penn’s further advancement of technology, innovation, and continuous improvement for products, processes, and manufacturing equipment. 

Before this he was senior VP of technology and innovation. 

Maleschitz joined East Penn in 2018 with more than 30 years of industry experience. In 2012, he won the International Lead Award for his contributions in battery design, production engineering, and quality assurance. 

East Penn said Maleschitz has been integral to supporting research, development, and technological strategies and “will build on his success with innovation and continuous improvement to help further advance the efficiency and effectiveness of the additional operations he now oversees”.
