After his retirement, Dick will continue to serve as a Board Member for the Company as recommended by the Board of Directors and approved by the Company’s shareholders.

“Rob combines strong international finance, motion industry and extensive training/experience of lean tools and principles, all of which will contribute to the accomplishment of the strategic goals and objectives of our company,” commented Dick Warzala, President and CEO. “Rob will be a key member of our Operational Excellence Team as we expand and implement Allied Systematic Tools (AST) in all areas of our business. His past leadership experience in implementing ERP systems will also help ensure a successful installation of the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP System, currently being implemented throughout the Company.”

Prior to joining Allied, Rob worked for over two years as the Director of Finance for Avox Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Zodiac Aerospace.
