“I want to thank Jim for all he has done as CEO, growing Profile into the company it is today, and positioning it so well for growth in years to come,” Porzio said. “My focus will be on continuing to execute on the strategy we have in place to deliver best in class products while maintaining our long history of innovation focused on advancing sustainability.”

Tanner has held leadership roles with Profile Products since 1991. In retirement, Tanner will join the board of directors to further advise the Profile Products team and pursue other personal endeavors.

“We started with a small clay business and, together, we have built an incredible company,” Tanner said. “It is because of our culture and our commitment to each other that we have experienced unprecedented growth. I have tremendous confidence that Shane will continue to lead the growth of our great company into the future.”
