Prestolite Announces Tom Hogan as New President, Leece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems

Effective March 13, 2006, Thomas M. Hogan has been appointed to the position of President, Leece Neville Heavy Duty Systems.

Previously Tom had been President of Al Ko Kober, a manufacturer of specialty axles, and prior to that he was President at Motion Control Industries, a manufacturer of brake components. Both of these companies supply our current heavy duty customers, and as a result, Tom brings a wealth of market knowledge and contacts to us from within our own customer base.

Tom has also held positions in manufacturing and plant management at Motion Control and Renaissance Mfg., where he led multiple successful quality improvement and lean production projects throughout his career. We certainly look forward to his leadership in these areas.

Tom holds a B.S. in Engineering from The United States Military Academy at West Point. Tom and his wife Susan are planning to relocate to the Western New York area from their home in Indiana.

Welcome to the Prestolite Electric family, Tom!
