We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of John Laskowsky to the position of President and CEO of C&M Corporation effective January 10, 2011.
John’s proven record of leading organizations to higher levels of profitable growth coupled with a focus on operational excellence and a background in engineering is an ideal fit for C&M, a company poised for impressive growth. Under John’s leadership, we are certain that C&M will accelerate its expansion to new industries and segments, deepen its share of existing markets and lead the field in new product development.
John joins C&M from Barry Controls (a $130MM manufacturer of engineered systems for various industry sectors), where he was President and CEO since 2006. Prior to his work with Barry Controls, John worked at Eaton Truck Group — where he started up a manufacturing unit in central China and built a successful business as General Manager, living in China for three years – and Berg Electronics where he had broad P/L responsibility for a $60MM business. John has BSEE from the University of Missouri and an MBA from Pepperdine University in CA. He and his wife Marie and daughter Lauren reside in Ashland, MA.
We are thrilled to have John join our cadre of exceptional CEO’s leading our portfolio companies to reach their full potential. We are fortunate to have someone with John’s background and skills join C&M to lead us forward, execute on an already strong strategy, and launch C&M to new heights.
