New president, COO brings varied industry experience
SEEPEX Inc. announced that Mark Jones will succeed Mike Dillon as president. Jones began at SEEPEX July 10 in the position of president and chief operating officer and will assume chief executive responsibilities in the fourth quarter of 2017. Dillon will continue as the CEO and as a member of the management board of the SEEPEX global group of companies while Jones is on-boarded. After 2017, Dillon will continue at SEEPEX in engineering and product development roles.
Jones was most recently vice president of engineering and marketing at NORD Gear Corp. Jones has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Ohio State University and has worked at both NORD and SEW in engineering capacities. Jones also has been actively involved in sales and marketing activities at NORD and has spent a lot of time with both key OEM accounts and distributors. SEEPEX will count on Jones’ direction and experience in further developing sales, marketing and distribution.
“Many SEEPEX employees already know Mark from classes he has conducted at our facility since he has been with NORD,” said Dillon. “Mark was a guest speaker at many of our sales training sessions and has done several ad hoc sessions with engineering. Additionally, Mark has been our main contact in determining technical matters with NORD products. He was my first choice out of hundreds of applicants. I’m very confident in his abilities.”
“I am excited to join the SEEPEX team,” said Jones. “SEEPEX is a very forward thinking and innovative leader in the marketplace, including mechanical, electrical and control products. I believe a systems- and solution-based focus is the key to future growth.”
