Stevens Industries, Inc. Announces Promotion of Travis Oaks

Teutopolis, IL – Stevens Industries, Inc. is pleased to announce the promotion of Travis Oaks to Casework
Manager. Oaks took on the new role in the spring, in time for the busy summer construction season. In his new role he is focused on increasing technology usage in the Estimating and Drafting departments, delving into the future of 3-D models and rendered drawings for improved visuals and prints for customers.

Oaks joined the United States Marine Corps after high school and served four years. He then received a Bachelor of Science in Technology Management from Southeast Missouri State University. His extensive knowledge in drafting programs, namely Auto-CAD, brought him to Stevens in 2014. Oaks took increased leadership roles within the employee-owned company, assisting in the design and implementation of a company-wide project to organize and centralize drawings. He created a drafting scheduling program and training manuals.

He shared, “I’m entirely committed to making a positive impact at Stevens and am confident it’s a place where I can grow with the business. Our team gets stronger all the time, through investment in leadership trainings and experiences.”

J.R. Elder, Vice President of Casework Services commented, “Travis has made great strides in our Casework Services Department since he joined the team. He has progressed from a Draftsman, to Drafting Team Lead and now to Estimating and Drafting Manager. Travis was instrumental in standardizing our drafting systems and metrics. He processes the unique talent to streamline systems and manage change. We look forward to the improvements in our systems that Travis will provide.”

Growing up in Eastern Missouri, Oaks didn’t know life would bring him to Central Illinois but is now a proudly involved member of the community. Oaks is generous with his time, volunteering as a mentor for the Unit 40 Mentoring Program. He, his wife Jayne and their three German Shepherd dogs reside in Dieterich, Illinois.

Stevens Industries, Inc. is an industry leader in commercial casework, millwork, countertops, solid
surface and decorative surfaces. The company is 100-percent employee owned by its 550 associates.
