Fluid and material conveyance solutions distributor ERIKS North America — No. 4 on MDM’s 2022 Top Hose/Accessories Distributor list — announced Dec. 1 that it has appointed David Brown as its Chief Financial Officer.
Carrying more than 15 years of senior leadership experience and over 25 years of financial roles in accounting and finance, Brown “has expertise aligning finance organizations and departments with overall organizational strategy and operating goals across multiple companies and industries,” ERIKS said.
Most recently, Brown worked as CFO at A. Stucki Company, a manufacturer of highly engineered freight car components in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There, he focused on ERP and acquisition integration to drive value creation and enhanced profitability, ERIKS said.
At ERIKS, Brown will be expected to lead the company’s finance team through a transition out of ERIKS Global, which sold the North American division in March 2022.
“We are pleased to welcome Dave to the ERIKS NA team, and I look forward to working closely with him as we build momentum on our growth journey,” said Jeff Crane, CEO of ERIKS North America. “Having Dave as a thought partner will ensure that we are not only growing our business aggressively but that we also have the tools and insight necessary to maximize our profitability in the process.”
Brown commented, “I am pleased to join a company that is focused on delivering best in class customer experience, is committed to a culture of inclusion and engagement, and is uniquely positioned to deliver enhanced shareholder value.”
