After an exhaustive search, Maxcess, which produces products and services for web handling applications, has named Odd Joergenrud as its new CEO following the retirement of Greg Jehlik.
“Odd brings a wealth of global leadership and manufacturing expertise to Maxcess,” said Tim Callahan, CEO of Berwind, which owns Maxcess. “His entrepreneurial and commercial expertise will contribute to the continued growth and success of Maxcess.”
Joergenrud comes to Maxcess from BBB Industries, a manufacturer of automotive parts, where he was president and CCO. Prior to that, he spent 23 years with Robert Bosch in executive roles that took him all over the world. In his last position at Bosch, he was president of its $1 billion aftermarket business in North America.
“I am honored to be a part of the Maxcess team,” said Joergenrud. “It is a privilege to be a part of an organization that delivers innovative products and solutions to the best clients, develops talented professionals and operates on a global scale.”
To help assist in building out the global Maxcess platform, Jehlik will be consulting on future mergers and acquisitions. The company has added five acquisitions to its portfolio since 2015.
