Stampin’ Up! Appoints New President

Direct sales company Stampin’ Up! announced yesterday that president Dale Fillmore, who’d been with the company since June 2006, is retiring.

“From the beginning, we knew we wouldn’t have Dale for very long,” CEO and Founder Shelli Gardner said about Fillmore. “He came out of retirement to work with us, and I am extremely grateful for the inspiring leadership, vision, and service he has provided during the past four years—he will be dearly missed.”

Fillmore will be replaced by Rich Jutkins, who has been Director and Vice President of Logistics at Stampin’ Up! since 2001, overseeing operations at the company’s Kanab (UT) manufacturing facility and Riverton (UT) home office.

“Rich started his career with Smith’s Food and Drug in manufacturing,” says Gardner. “He also has invaluable experience in educating, implementing change, and leading. His passion for Stampin’ Up!, his commitment to our demonstrators (sales force), and his skills as a leader will be valuable moving forward.”

Jutkins spent more than a decade at Smith’s running plants followed by several years teaching chemistry, biology & physics, and coaching basketball. A Utah native and graduate of the University of Utah. Jutkins lives in Riverton with his wife Wendi. The couple has four children.
