From the NCS:

But Stan’s career in comics goes all the way back to 1949 when he started as a staff colorist for Marvel Comics predecessor, Timely Comics. Stan soon became manager of the coloring department, and is the artist responsible for designing the color schemes for many of Marvel Comics most iconic characters, including Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. But Stan also expanded his artistic talents while at Marvel, drawing stories for Teen Humor and Romance titles such as Millie the Model, Patsy Walker, and My Girl Pearl. For a few years Stan drew teen humor comics such as Binky’s Buddies and Swing with Scooter for DC comics, before settling at Archie in the early 1970’s.

Stan’s most recent accomplishments include the Archie marries Veronica/Archie Marries Betty mini-series, a feature length Simpsons Comics story for Matt Groening’s Bongo Comics, and The Best of Stan Goldberg, a deluxe hardcover anthology of his Archie Comics work from IDW publishing.
