Elliott Group Chief Operating Officer Michael Lordi has been named CEO of the Jeannette-based company.

Lordi succeeds outgoing CEO Yasuyuki Uruma, who has retired after 47 years with the Elliott Group and its parent company, the Tokyo-based Ebara Corp.

“Going forward, we will continue to strengthen the Elliott brand by leveraging the close partnership between our U.S. and Japanese operations,” Lordi said, “investing in our people and facilities, and sharpening the focus on strategy and execution.”

Lordi started with the company in 1987 and has held a range of technical and leadership roles, including vice president of industrial products from 2008-2011, vice president of global service from 2011-2016 and COO from 2016-2019.

A lawyer, he has degrees from Grove City College, Robert Morris University and Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University.

Elliott is a leading manufacturer of compressors, turbines and pumps for the petrochemical, refining, oil and gas, and liquefied gas industries.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
