Levine joined Franklin Electric on July 3 from Nidec Corp., where he served as President of the Motion Control and Drives business for the past six years.

In his new role, Levine will be responsible for Franklin Electric’s global Water Systems business. Kenney will remain with the company through the end of July to ensure a smooth transition, the company said in a news release.

Levine served in global profit and loss and technology roles for Nidec for 13 years, where he oversaw an international team of 3,800 individuals across 13 operational sites.

During his time with Nidec, Levine positioned the company to grow two-fold in five years through organic growth and acquisitions, Franklin Electric officials said.
