Ergotron announces new CEO

Office ergonomics vendor Ergotron has confirmed Chad Severson as its new CEO.

Severson actually took up the role at the beginning of the year – succeeding Pete Segar – but his appointment has only recently been made public by the US-based company.

A graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Severson spent almost 14 years at Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions, most recently serving as President of its InSinkErator waste disposal products unit.

“With the ever-growing trend of getting people to move more as they work, learn, play and care for others, Chad’s proven experience in strategy, marketing, operations and general management will prove advantageous for Ergotron,” said Simon Peckham, CEO of parent company Melrose Industries. - (OPI)
