Industrial fastening, packaging and supply solutions distributor LINC Systems announced Nov. 1 that Kelly Evans retired as the company’s chief executive officer effective that same date, and that Michael “Mick” Beyer has been named his successor.

Evans will remain active in supporting Westfield, Indiana-based LINC as an advisor and shareholder of the company, and a news release noted that Evans’ industry knowledge and experience will continue to serve as a valuable resource to the board of directors, the rest of the company and Beyer.

“Kelly’s passion for the industry began in 1989 at R.V. Evans as he took the opportunity to succeed and develop the family’s business into it’s third generation of ownership,” LINC detailed. “He understood the importance of culture in driving the strategic vision of an organization and carried this over to his time at LINC. We applaud him for his successful career, appreciate his service to the company and wish him well in his future endeavors. We are also excited about the significant opportunities that lie ahead for LINC under Mick’s leadership.”

Beyer brings over 30 years of industrial experience to LINC, and most recently served as chief financial officer of Henniges Automotive, a global provider of sealing systems for the transportation industry. Beyer has also served as CFO of Aludyne, a global light weighting solutions and components supplier; and CFO of Wolverine Advanced Materials, a damping and sealing solutions provider in the automotive and sealing industries, where Beyer worked closely with various executives of Center Rock Capital Partners from 2011 to 2015.

“I am very excited to be joining the LINC family,” Beyer said. “I have had the privilege of spending a significant amount of time with the board and Kelly over the last few months and have truly appreciated the organization they have built and the reputation for delivering service above and beyond our customers’ expectations. I look forward to working with all our employees to  continue executing on the growth opportunities in front of us.”
