MRO distributor Motion Industries Inc., Birmingham, Alabama, on Monday announced that it has promoted Jim May to director of corporate development, effective April 1.

May joined Motion in August 2020 as director of strategic planning and development to advance the company’s corporate strategic planning, provide economic, industry and competitor analyses, and support deal-side acquisition execution and integration processes.

In his new role, he will continue his involvement in Motion’s strategic planning but will take on direct responsibility for advancing the company’s acquisition strategy and processes. May will continue to report directly to Greg Cook, Motion executive vice president and CFO.

“Since joining Motion last August, Jim has quickly displayed his financial, strategic, acquisition and relational acumen,” said Cook. “In his new, expanded role, Jim will now have front-line responsibility for building relationships with potential acquisition targets, and will be the outward-facing point person for our acquisition pipeline.”
