Liverpool, New York-based JGB Enterprises, Inc. — a company backed by HCI Equity Partners — has added two new executives.
Benjamin Judd joins the company’s senior leadership team as vice president of industrial sales, and Michael Hawn joins as vice president of government services.
Judd joins JGB from Eaton Corporation, where he worked as district VP for Gulf Coast operations. JGB said he will be “critical in driving commercial and industrial growth and profitability for the JGB’s commercial operations.”
Hawn is expected to lead JGB’s Defense Services business unit after more than 15 years working at Navistar Defense, LLC, where he oversaw the capture of more than $440 million of Department of Defense system program awards.
“The addition of both Ben and Mike validates our commitment to fanatically servicing our customer, while continuing to build our company into the premier platform of industrial and defense distribution,” said Kevin Kilkelly, president of JGB. “Specifically, Ben joining the team will allow greater focus on our regional growth strategies and key commercial aspects of our company. Mike’s proven record of success within the Defense Sector’s ground vehicle market, allows us to continue our unwavering support for the warfighter, with the equipment they require to get their jobs done!”
