Al Fortney: CEO
Al founded Fortney Sales in 1978. Al had successfully served the industrial marketplace in a sales role for a number of years. After yet another political “sea change” at his previous employer, Al decided to strike out on his own. He quit his job and started looking for lines to represent as a manufacturer’s rep.
By the way…he did this while his wife was in the hospital recovering from minor surgery. Although we wouldn’t recommend such a move for you, it was probably the only thing that kept Joyce from throttling him. All these years later, who can question his success.
We are all grateful for his vision and dedication.
David Fortney: President
David has worked with the company since was able to walk. Well…sort of. David has been involved with the business at all levels, cleaning up the warehouse as a kid, working in the warehouse as a teenager, and so on. David joined the company officially in June of 1989 working in customer service. He eventually moved into Outside Sales and then into management. David now leads our organization serving as President.

D3 joined the company in July, 2007. He can drive a truck, unload it, find the best way to make all of it fit in half the space it should, and make it all look easy.

Our resident outdoors-man, he can build it, hike it, survive it. When the zombie apocalypse occurs…I’m on his team. He’s now helping to build the next generation of leaders as a Scoutmaster in his local Scout Troop.
