FARMINGTON HILLS — Mark VandenBerg, senior vice president and chief financial officer at ACO Inc., has been promoted to president.

VandenBerg will provide staff with the direction and stability to help achieve the company’s goal of providing a full line hardware store with knowledgeable associates and helpful customer service.
