The PPE supplier says the moves help it be poised for continued business and brand development.

Chicago-based personal protective equipment maker SureWerx announced a trio of executive leadership changes Feb. 24 that the company said will help it remain poised for continued business and brand development.

Effective immediately:

  • Brett Gagnon takes over the global role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) from Mike Flood, who will be retiring at the end of June this year.
  • Rishi Sharma takes over the global role of VP Mergers & Acquisitions (VP M&A) from Bill Jeffery, who also will be retiring at the end of June of this year. 
  • Anna-Mara Parente takes on the newly created global role Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) after most serving as VP HR for over a decade. 

All three will report directly to SureWerx CEO Chris Baby.

“As our company continues to undergo significant growth and transformation, I am thrilled to have the caliber of Executive talent that Brett, Rishi and Anna-Maria bring to SureWerx,” Baby said in a news release. “All three individuals bring a level of Executive strategic depth and experience to that we will absolutely need to continue to build out a global platform enabling innovative safety and productivity solutions for people around the world.”

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank both Bill and Mike for their dedication and loyalty to SureWerx and the tremendous growth and strategic contributions they made to our business,” Baby added. “We wish them both wonderful and extremely well-deserved retirements with their families!”
