President and CEO
East Penn Manufacturing
“I am privileged to be involved with all aspects of leading this truly remarkable family-owned business with strategy, succession, acquisitions, capital allocation, operations, distribution, sales and more,” said Pruitt, president and CEO since 2018. “I also get to spend time with our wonderful customers and get to know our family of employees!”
He said he is proud to have gone through “an unprecedented time like COVID, and to have become a better leader,” knowing that the decisions made “were never about ourselves, but for the good of our company, the employees and customers.”
Treat people with respect, dignity and honesty, Pruitt advised, and lead with passion and humility. “These lessons were taught by the leaders that came before me, and I look forward to the privilege of passing them on.”
“I work, haha!” he joked when asked what he does for fun. But he also really enjoys time with family, especially at the beach. Pruitt likes exercising at the gym and fishing, too.
