Fagus GreCon Inc. named Eric Peterson as CEO. Peterson has more than 20 years of experience leading successful teams across a broad spectrum of manufacturing industries from the food industry to the building products. He will be based in Fagus Grecon’s North America headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
Peterson, who holds an MBA in Marketing from Indiana University and a BS in Accounting from the University of Illinois, most recently led the Husqvarna Group’s retail handheld portfolio and has previously served as president of Sakrete of North America while at CRH Company-Oldcastle.
“It is a privilege to be a part of an organization with such a rich history of delivering innovative high-quality products and services that not only keep our customers safer but helps them reduce their costs,” Peterson says of his new company. Peterson will be working with the team leadership in establishing a strong infrastructure that will help the organization continue to deliver best-in-class products and services to its customers.
The addition of Peterson in Charlotte continues to build upon the organizational move from Portland, Ore. to Charlotte that began two years ago. The move brought Fagus GreCon closer to many of its customers, allowing it to improve the team’s ability to reach its customer base and better assist customers with service visits, technical support and sales visits more quickly and efficiently. In addition, Fagus GreCon has extended its outreach by establishing a motivated team of outside service technicians to assist customers with their business needs across the U.S. resulting in lowering service costs, and improving service and communications to customers.
These changes along with the business and growth plan that Peterson and the team will be building upon for North America will carry the continued momentum from 2019 into the years to come.
Fagus GreCon, Inc. is a leading supplier in the development and manufacturing of fire prevention solutions and measuring systems.
