Company Notice – The loss of a Leader, Coworker and Friend:
To the Employees of The Shellenberger Family of Companies,
It is with the deepest sense of sadness that I share with you the news of my dearest friend Rich Antrim’s passing this past Friday evening. Rich and I spent most of the day together Friday visiting our Landis operation in Reading with Dave Lynch. We came back to York and Rich left for his hunting camp in Wellsboro, Pa. His brother who lives in the area found his body in the woods next to his tree stand. The feeling at this point is he had a heart attack.
Rich and I were friends and business associates for just over 40 years. Memories of our time together through good and bad times will be with me for the rest of my days.
As a matter of information, in addition to my present position as Chairman and CEO of the Shellenberger Family of Companies, I will now take on the position of President. I have also asked Dave Lynch to assume a greater role within the organization. Dave has been a Board member the last 5 years and recently took on the responsibility of managing the Landis Express operation under the guidance of Rich Antrim. In addition to oversight of the Landis operation, Dave will become Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer effective immediately. Dave will continue to take on additional responsibilities within the organization as he transitions out of other professional obligations that he currently has.
I am fortunate and blessed to have the strength and dedication of Senior Management as well as every employee of the Shellenberger Family of Companies. We will pull through this painful time and as a tribute to Rich’s memory continue to build an organization he would be proud of.
Thank you all for your support during these times.
Chairman, President and CEO
