Nick Keever is appointed President of Enercon Engineering
We are pleased to announce Nick Keever has been appointed the role of President of Enercon Engineering. His official start date is August 1, 2020. Nick’s current role as Vice President of IDS, Enercon’s most successful business unit, has prepared Nick for this new larger role. As a 21-year Enercon Team Member, he is knowledgeable about all aspects of our business. He joined the firm as an intern where he contributed immediately helping us launch our first company website. After graduation, Nick took the role of Quality Manager and his first highly-valued accomplishment was to obtain our ISO 9000 certification – an effort he envisioned, led, and achieved in under six months, and on first pass. Through the years Nick has led many, and has been a key contributor, of our most successful endeavors. As VP of IDS he is leading a team that provides a key element for our nation’s missile defense infrastructure. Under his leadership IDS has been recognized and honored as a critical supplier to the program earning the highest Quality Awards and recognition. We look forward to Nick’s continued contributions to enhancing our culture and winning new business opportunities.
The marketplaces we serve are in a high state of change. The consolidation in the paralleling switchgear business, due mainly to technology and costs, as well as the rapid growth in the Defense Industry, is driving a need for Enercon to grow, develop, and solidify our current successes. Additionally, a multi-year commitment has just ended, which frees some capital to look for new investments for growth in new strategic directions. Enercon is positioned well to take advantage of these multiple opportunities, and in order to expand effectively and strategically, the separation of the roles CEO and President, will help us both focus and achieve superior results.
Larry Tangel is currently holding both the CEO and President roles, and with this promotion, Nick will take over the day-to-day leadership of operations of Enercon, while Larry will be focused on new opportunities, strategic directions, marketplaces and partnerships. With over two decades of successful collaboration together, this change in roles will add value to the enterprise as we continue to provide superior help to our customers, our teammates and the communities we serve.
As many of you know, Larry was diagnosed with bladder cancer in April and is currently undergoing treatments. The first round of treatments is complete and all indications point to a positive outcome. While it is a distraction and causes fatigue, it is not the reason for Nick’s promotion, it only accelerated it as we assessed the growing market opportunities.
Please join Larry in congratulating Nick and to help us all move into the next phase of success and growth for Enercon.
