About the Owner
Ken Throckmorton - CFP, CASGD
In the fall of 2006, Ken entered the fence industry working for Styx Valley Fence in Wadsworth, Ohio, as a salesperson, after being a chef for the last 15 years prior. Ken quickly became one of the top salesmen in the company before the famed 2007-2008 downturn in the economy, where Ken went into the installation side to keep working. In 2010, the owners decided to close the doors on that fence company and open under a different name (DMA Solutions), where Ken was given the task of general manager, starting over with very minimal staff. Ken left that company, and on August 21, 2014, Ken opened Forever Fence & Rail.
In 2014, his company won Rookie of the Year from his main supplier Digger Specialties Inc with less then 4 months in business. The following year, he received another award for Largest Percentage of Growth, also from Digger Specialties Inc.
Past president Michael Kalinich suggested he join the AFA, and in the winter of 2014, he did. Orlando Fencetech was his first in attendance. Ken signed up for AFA U in the fall of 2016, took the STS class and took CFP exam. After that STS class, Ken was asked to join the committee and help rework the course to give it a new look and help teach in the future. Ken has been on the committee still to this day, and has instructed at the 2017 & 2018 AFA U FIS.
The Northern Ohio chapter asked Ken to be more involved then he was locally, and he became the chapter president for the 2017 year, bringing the excitement back at the chapter level with speakers, education and very successful clay shoots. Ken was just reelected Chapter President for 2019. Ken has served on the Chapter Success Committee, first in the Awards and Points Committee, and now on the Chapter Boarders Committee
