Sanger announces retirement from Worthington

Jeffrey S. Sanger, co-owner/co-founder of Worthington, is retiring after 18 years with the company and 30 years in the power industry.

“Jeff was instrumental in building Worthington into the [company] that it is today,” said Worthington President Paul Meeks. “In the process, he became a travel warrior. I have treasured the opportunity to be Jeff’s business partner and good friend the last 18 years and both I and the company wish Jeff and [his wife] Karen health and happiness, as they embark on life’s next exciting journey.”

Some fun facts about Jeff’s globe-trotting adventures:

  • Visited over 55 countries
  • Travelled to 48 U.S. states (missed the Dakotas) and eight Canadian provinces
  • Exceeded 225,000 air miles annually for each of the last 15 years
  • Longest trip: 38 hours, one way, to Lesotho

Sanger said he is retiring to spend time with his wife and daughter.

He posted on LinkedIn: “In spite of the bad airline seating, sub-par hotel rooms, & long spans away from home, I have enjoyed just about every decision I have made in life. Working within this industry has been a privilege. I am proud of the company I have helped build along with the so many team members at Worthington as well as sales representatives around the world who made this possible. I am leaving Worthington with fond memories, lasting friendships around the world and a fondness of the people I have met in this industry. Thank you for letting me be part of your world. I am forever grateful and truly blessed.”

Worthington provides log and debris booms, ice booms, fish guidance systems, public safety boat barriers, floating walkways, buoys and engineering/design services.

The company’s products have been used at many dams and hydroelectric facilities, including the 51.2-MW Lake Lynn Dam project in West Virginia.
