Eagle Alloy Announces Organizational Structure Changes
Jeff Cook announced some changes to Eagle Alloy’s corporate organizational structure today.
Mark and John have built Eagle Alloy into a foundry capable of competing with any in the world on total cost, value and service. Succession planning has been a key focus over the past few years and has included an ESOP program that continues to sell the company to the employees via annual stock sale. Their latest move is an organizational change that maintains the “leadership by partnership” formula that has worked so well for them over the years.
Mark and John will begin moving towards more of an advisory role to the newly formed executive group. Effective January 1, 2015, Mark will take the title of CEO. John will become President / Secretary. The executive group will consist of Nic Tarzwell as Vice President / Technical Director, Dave Fazakerley as Vice President of Manufacturing and myself as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Lisa Price has been promoted to Director of Human Resources. Jason Klein has been promoted to Senior Engineer. Ann Augustin will remain Treasurer / Office Manager. Jim Smith will remain Engineering Manager as he prepares for eventual retirement in a couple of years. Engineering and Quality Control will be under Nic’s authority. All of the direct reports to Mark and John will remain the same.
While customers will see little difference in daily interaction, this new organizational structure and leadership team will better position Eagle Alloy in its continued evolution as “The Last Foundry Standing”.
