Sales Manager, Partner
(Guess we can’t pick on the Niners any more) 15 years of finding solutions for customers. Marc is The go-to guy for unique challenges in the world of Lumber products. As our new Sales manager, Marc is now helping people help people.
Marc Stockland became a top salesperson for Valencia Lumber within a few years of joining the
company in 2005. In mid-2018, Marc accepted the position of Sales Manager where he applies a
commitment to solution-based selling based on clear communication and positive attitude –
something that has served him well throughout his sales career. In November of 2018, Marc
became a part-owner of the company.
Prior to joining Valencia Lumber, Marc worked as an Energy Technician in Customer Service
for the Southern California Gas Company, where he learned early on that that career path was
not for him. As Marc put it, “Get an education, work for a big company, move up the ladder,
retire. I needed more: more fulfilment, more challenge. I knew I had much more to give. I just
wasn’t going to make many people happy in that environment, on that path.”
Upon joining Valencia Lumber, Marc went on to learn about lumber, panels, milling,
accessories, and the market for these products, understanding the fact that his customers needed
him to be as knowledgeable as possible. Even more importantly, he learned the value in building
great relationships. His customers appreciate his professionalism, the fact that he is never more
than a phone call away, and that they can trust him to be honest and candid with them.
Understanding that solving people’s problems takes a lot of hard work and there are no shortcuts,
Marc takes pride in his continual effort to educate himself in order to better serve Valencia
Outside of work, Marc can be found driving his children to soccercheerbirthdaypartiesballet
basketballfootball, fishing and dirt biking, and screaming “IN YOUR FACE!!” to all the people who dissed his beloved 49ers before Super Bowl 54.
Richard didn’t know how much he learned from his Dad about lumber until he joined us, knowledge that our customers enjoy every day. A man for all seasons: Dodgers//Summer, Rams/Fall, Lakers/Winter
Richard Aguinaga, a salesperson for Valencia Lumber since 2015, has truly found his calling,
thanks to the opportunity to merge his knowledge in sales, marketing, and customer service
along with his familiarity with woodworking.
Having grown up around the industry thanks to his Dad’s career as a woodworker and owner of a
local millworks company, Richard would accompany Leo to woodworking shows, and despite
his parents’ insistence that he aim higher than working in production, did eventually worked at
the shop on occasion. It was there that he learned the intricacies of using a scroll saw, as well as
other important skills, such as planing, milling, surfacing and sanding. More importantly,
Richard learned the value of hard work and integrity.
During those early years, Richard’s father worked to build the family home himself, on a lot
where a house had stood until it was destroyed by the Northridge earthquake in 1994. That house
remains the family home to this day. With his brothers and sister, Richard learned a lot about
construction through the 3-year process of seeing this house rise from a vacant lot, knowledge
that he applies to serving his customers today.
A graduate of California State University Northridge (CSUN), Richard holds double Bachelor’s
degrees in Finance and Real Estate. When not hard at work bringing in more business for
Valencia Lumber, Richard enjoys trying out new restaurants and travelling with his girlfriend,
frustrating himself on the golf course, snowboarding and watching Los Angeles sports teams.
Richard does NOT look like that biology student in his lab coat looking up from his microscope
on the cover of the catalog for California community colleges. It’s not him, we promise.
