Senior Management Changes at Amesbury and Truth HardwareJanuary 10th, 2014 by DWM Magazine
Tyman Plc, the parent company of both Amesbury and Truth Hardware, has announced senior management changes as part of the integration of the businesses post the acquisition of Truth in July 2013.
Jeff Graby, currently president of Truth Hardware, will assume the role of president and CEO for the combined Amesbury and Truth organizations, effective immediately. Graby joined Truth in 2012 and oversaw the divestment of the business from Melrose Plc to Tyman Plc. Prior to that he held a number of senior management positions within Interface Solutions, RAM Industries and FES Systems Inc.
Jonathan Petromelis, currently CEO of Amesbury, has made the decision to further his career outside of the Tyman Group. Following a period of handover he will advise on integration initiatives before leaving the business.
In addition, Mike McCann will join the company to oversee sales activity across both Amesbury and Truth brands, as senior vice president of sales, effective January 13. McCann brings to the business extensive sales and marketing experience from senior roles with Toshiba, Xerox and, most recently, Guardian Industries where he was vice president of global sales.
Louis Eperjesi, CEO of Tyman, commented that, “the enlarged business of Amesbury and Truth is making good progress with its integration projects. I am confident that Jeff Graby and Mike McCann will continue to successfully develop our business within the North American market and I wish them both well in their new positions.”
