Industrial supply industry veteran F. A. “Skip” DeVilling III will retire next month, according to an announcement from DeVilling & Associates, LLC of Sarasota, Florida.
“I would like to thank my constituents, mentors, and friends, who helped me throughout my career,” DeVilling said in a statement. “I am so grateful! We never do this by ourselves…there are always people in our network helping. Thank you!”
More than two decades ago, DeVilling founded DeVilling & Associates as a retained search firm and consulting agency representing a customer base of industrial distributors and manufacturers.
DeVilling also has served as a member of various association boards, including the Industrial Distribution Association, American Supply and Machinery Association, and helped “lay the groundwork for the industrial marketplace,” his company said.
DeVilling received the 2017 NetPlus Alliance Founder’s Award for his industry devotion and leadership.
He and his wife, Trish, of 49 years, have lived in Sarasota, Florida for the past 20 years.
