Dwight Davis elected Chairman of the Board and CEO
June 2005, Schofield, WI--Dwight Davis has been elected Chairman of the Board and CEO of Greenheck Fan Corporation. Former Chairman, Robert C. Greenheck, will remain on the Board as Chairman Emeritus. In his new position, Davis will continue to oversee the company’s operations as Chief Executive Officer, preside over Board matters, and guide the company’s future direction.
"It’s time," said Robert Greenheck, who co-founded the company with his brother, Bernie, in Schofield, Wisconsin in 1947. "When Dwight joined our management team four years ago as President, our industry--and manufacturing as a whole—was headed into a serious multi-year downturn. In spite of the worst prolonged business climate I have ever seen, Dwight has demonstrated the unique ability to successfully lead us through adversity, while driving a sound future vision. Greenheck has fared very well under Dwight's leadership, and I look forward to seeing more exciting opportunities unfold."
Sales at Greenheck, the world’s largest manufacturer of air movement and control equipment, have increased 40% since Davis joined the firm, and the company’s worldwide workforce has grown 25%. Additions to existing Greenheck plants, a new plant in China, and the acquisitions of three other companies have significantly increased manufacturing capacity and distribution in recent years.
Prior to joining Greenheck in 2001, Davis served nearly 16 years with Wausau Insurance in a number of executive roles, having retired in 2000 as President and COO. He also spent close to 20 years in two-year college executive positions, the last 8 as President of Northcental Technical College (1977 – 1985).
Dwight and his wife, Linda, have been residents of the Wausau area for 28 years and have served in many professional and civic leadership roles. Dwight presently serves as a Director of: Aspirus Health Care, Inc.; Wausau Homes; The Judd Alexander Foundation; M&I Bank; the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum; the YMCA Foundation, Northcentral Technical College Foundation, The Wausau Health Foundation; and the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce Association.
