John Whitaker moving on from Anchor Distributors

NEW KENSINGTON, PA, September 20, 2018 – Whitaker Corporation announced today that John Whitaker, vice president of Anchor Distributors, has moved with his family to California and stepped down from day-to-day operations at Anchor.

“It’s hard to express how much it has meant for my brother John to have been a part of Whitaker Corporation for all these years,” said Bob Whitaker Jr., president of Whitaker Corporation. The two have worked side by side since 1992 under the tutelage of their late father, Bob Whitaker Sr., the corporation’s founder and former president.

Karen Fulton, who has served as John’s assistant for the last six years, has assumed his responsibilities as the new director of operations.

“Karen has been involved in every aspect of the business at Anchor since she started working here and is a natural fit to assume this role,” said Bob Whitaker.

Prior to joining Whitaker Corporation in April 2012, Fulton served as vice president of Hope & Passion Ministries in Irwin, Pennsylvania. A Fulbright scholar, she attended Kent State University.

With headquarters just east of Pittsburgh, Whitaker Corporation is comprised of Whitaker House, Anchor Distributors, Whitaker House Español, Word Alive Canada, and Smart Kidz Books. A Christian, family-run business established in 1976, it is dedicated to proclaiming the gospel to the lost and flooding the world with life-changing media of eternal value.
