Ardex Americas names three execs to lead company
Ardex Americas, an Aliquippa-based manufacturer of specialty cements, has named three executives to lead the company. Its former CEO departed last year.
Ardex Americas, the U.S. subsidiary of Germany-based Ardex Group, said Lori Angelo, Mike Crouch and Jesse David have “shared accountability for the performance of the Ardex Americas business,” effective Jan. 1.
Angelo, who has been interim CEO since early November, is the company's chief financial officer and has been with the company for 31 years.
Crouch, previously the chief marketing officer, has been named president of Ardex Americas' Latin American division. He has been with the company for 15 years.
David, previously general manager, has been named president of the company's U.S. and Canadian division. He has worked at Ardex Americas for 21 years.
“We are very pleased with this decision as this structure will draw upon the proven and dedicated leadership talent in our group,” the company said in a written statement. “It will allow focused effort on our important regional initiatives while driving the overall Ardex strategy in the Americas.”
Former CEO Stephan Liozu left the company at the beginning of November to “pursue other opportunities,” Ardex Americas previously said.
Liozu is pursuing a doctoral degree in management from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and has published a book on pricing, according to his website.
