Vance Pflanz Suffers Stroke
Industry veteran Vance Pflanz, who has worked in the consumer electronics industry since 1958, has suffered a major, debilitating stroke, BrandSource, of which Pflanz is a past president, said this week.
Pflanz is the founder and operator of Pflanz Electronics in Sioux City, Iowa, which was the winner of a Dealerscope Retail Excellence Award in 2013.
“Vance is a remarkable individual with a unique combination of attributes,” Bob Lawrence, CEO of BrandSource, said as part of a recent tribute to Pflanz. “He’s exceptionally smart, highly skilled at marketing, well-liked by his customers and colleagues, and he’s fearless when it comes to embracing change. That’s rare. Vance has made major contributions to our members and to the industry. We salute him.”
