Thomas G. Gasbarre has stepped down as CEO of Gasbarre Products, Inc. He has held the position since 1990 when his father, George Gasbarre, the founder of the company, retired.
During his tenure as CEO, Tom Gasbarre steered the company in a forward direction and completed a series of key acquisitions that earned Gasbarre Products a worldwide reputation. He will remain as chief financial officer until his planned retirement at the end of 2020.
As a result, Gasbarre has announced that Tom Gasbarre’s son, Alex Gasbarre, has been appointed chief executive officer and is now leading the development and execution of the company’s short- and long-term strategies.
Alex Gasbarre has been working at the company in several roles for the last 14 years. His most recent role as president of press & technologies and chief operating officer has given him the opportunity to hone his skills regarding strategic planning, information technology, marketing, human resources, and international sales.
Gasbarre has promoted Heath Jenkins to succeed Alex Gasbarre as president, press & automation, and manufacturing technologies. Jenkins has been with Gasbarre for more than three years, and has proven himself a leader with a strong ability to develop an organization. In his earlier role as vice president, sales & marketing for Gasbarre press division, Jenkins has brought attention to the Gasbarre name and promoted sales growth and customer satisfaction for the organization.
“The next generation of leaders at Gasbarre has proven themselves to be very capable, dedicated, and committed to carrying on the 46-year tradition of the company,” said Tom Gasbarre. “I believe these changes will position Gasbarre Products, Inc. for continued success for many years to come.”
