July 16, 2015 -- Tank Connection, a provider of dry bulk and liquid storage systems, recently announced that Bill Neighbors, the company's president and chief executive officer, will be resigning, effective September 2015.
Vince Horton, current vice president of sales, will be named Tank Connection's president upon Neighbor's departure. Horton is a founding partner of the company and has served as an executive staff advisor from day one. Moreover, Tank Connection just crossed the 500 employee mark and announced earlier this year its transition as an ESOP, employee-owned company.
"This has been my personal plan for some time, but I also wanted to make sure that the right pieces were in place for Tank Connection to advance to the next level as the industry leader in storage," said Neighbors. "I could not be more pleased that an ESOP trust is now in place and that our employees will be the beneficiaries of this trust down the road."
"Going forward, my plan is to sit on the company board of advisors until the end of time or until my services are no longer needed," he added. "There will be no loss of my services, vision and input. In essence, I am moving over so that others can move up. In my view, this is just one more aspect about TC that keeps our employee culture dynamic."
