Solve Industrial Motion Group, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based portfolio company of Audax Private Equity, has named Jim Taylor as its new chief information officer.
“Bringing Jim on board is a huge win for us, our customers, distributors and supply chain partners,” Solve CEO Lisa Mitchell said. “With 25 years in leadership positions, he has the experience to help drive Solve’s enterprise evolution.”
Taylor previously worked at Daseke, a specialized transportation and logistics company. As CIO and a senior vice president, he was responsible for the management, governance and technical direction of the company. His role there included oversight of transportation management systems, business intelligence, data centers, HR systems and cybersecurity, Solve said.
Prior to Daseke, Taylor managed tech support at Transportation Insight, a transportation logistics company.
“Since Audax Private Equity acquired Solve in July 2021, the industrial bearings and power transmission components company has been strategically growing its product lines, services and staff,” Solve said in a statement. “Taylor is the first of several new hires slated to join Solve’s executive leadership team.”
