Silvia Dugan has been elected chairwoman of the board of directors for PACE Resources Inc. in York, succeeding her father and the former chairman of the board, Russell E. Horn Jr., who died Jan. 18.
A York resident, Dugan has been president and CEO of Print-O-Stat Inc., PACE’s subsidiary company, since 2003.
Dugan also is the granddaughter of Russell E. Horn Sr., who founded PACE Resources in 1970 as a holding company for its subsidiaries, including York-based engineering firm Buchart Horn Inc., which Horn also founded, in 1946.
Her “father and grandfather dedicated their careers to building this corporation,” Dugan said, and “I think it’s important to maintain their legacy.”
Dugan began her Print-O-Stat career in the sales division in the Philadelphia region 38 years ago and went on to hold multiple positions in sales, operations and management, a news release on her new title said.
Today, Dugan serves on the board of Print-O-Stat and Buchart Horn, and is past president of the Eastern Regional Reprographic Association and past president of the Firepower Group, both printing industry organizations.
She “has always had the best interest of the organization at hand, and, now as chairman of the PACE board, she brings her passion and leadership experience in guiding the PACE organization into the future,” said Brian Funkhouser, president and CEO of Buchart Horn.
PACE provides accounting, financial services and human resources as well as legal and corporate communications to its subsidiary companies, Buchart Horn and Print-O-Stat.
