Phillips & Temro Industries (PTI) named Thomas M. Moser as president, effective immediately. Moser succeeds Harry R. “Butch” Sumpter, who has been with PTI since 2006.
The appointment follows a planned transition and the completion of a formal search process conducted by a leading executive search firm, according to the company.
“We are thrilled to welcome an executive of Tom’s caliber to PTI,” said Jeff Fox, chairman and CEO of Harbour Group, PTI’s owner. ”He brings a unique background in engineered products, a proven track record of success in senior leadership positions in global markets, and significant experience in acquisitions. These qualifications make him the ideal candidate to lead PTI into its next stage of growth."
Moser joins PTI with over 25 years of experience with Emerson Process Management, the global leader in measurement and analytical instrumentation for the process industries. Most recently, Moser was group vice president of its Rosemount Measurement and Analytical business. Previously, he served in various senior leadership roles as well as general management roles in Europe and Asia. Over the course of his successful career, his functional responsibilities have included design engineering, sales and marketing, global operations and business development. Earlier in his career Moser served in various technical positions at IBM and Boise Cascade.
"I am truly excited about the opportunity to lead a company like PTI, which is known for its extraordinary people, problem-solving capacity and proven ability to help customers deal with emerging trends in thermal solutions," Moser said. "The company has great momentum and bright prospects. I look forward to working closely with Harbour Group and the PTI team to continue to build on this momentum and to create value for customers and investors."
"I would like to thank Butch for his outstanding contributions over the past nine years," Fox concluded. "The company experienced significant growth, diversification and globalization under his leadership."
