Phoenix, AZ, April 18, 2023 — The Industrial Supply Association (ISA) is excited to announce Craig Vogel as the recipient of this year’s John J. Buckley Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest honor bestowed by ISA to an individual in the MROP channel for their longstanding service in the industrial supply industry. Craig has made significant contributions to the success of the industry and has earned the respect of his associates and peers.

“Craig Vogel is the embodiment of what this award stands for,” said Brendan Breen, ISA President. “During his time as Chairman of the ISA Board, he selflessly helped the organization navigate challenges and opportunities with vision and purpose. He stands as a role model and a true servant-leader for all ISA volunteers to follow.”

Craig has spent 35+ years serving the industrial industry, most recently as Vice President of Industrial Sales for Stanley Black & Decker.

Craig has also demonstrated his passion for supporting transitioning service personnel and veterans pursuing careers in manufacturing through his support and advocacy for Workshops for Warriors.

“In addition to Craig’s customer advocacy, you would be hard-pressed to find an employee in these companies who Craig did not impact. He is an incredible leader who always put his team and employees first from the plant floor at East Long Meadow all the way through the executive teams,” stated Maria Ford, President of North America Industrial/Commercial Sales & Marketing at Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.

“To this day, Craig is still passionate about giving back through his work with the ISA convention and beyond,” Ford adds. “Craig has instilled, in all of us, a passion for this industry and his career and connectivity is truly one to emulate.
