Teknor Apex appointed William J. Murray as its new president. He succeeds Jonathan D. Fain, who remains CEO and becomes chairman of the board.
Murray will be responsible for the company's worldwide compounding businesses. Teknor Apex operates 12 manufacturing facilities in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Murray was also named president of Singapore-based Teknor Apex Asia Pacific.
Murray has served as executive vice president of the company since 2006. He joined Teknor Apex in 1978 as a project engineer. His positions with the company have included plant engineer, plant manager, and corporate director of engineering. He was promoted to vice president of manufacturing in 1992 and to senior vice president of manufacturing in 2002. At this time he also became a member of the company's Senior Management Team.
"In 35 years with Teknor Apex, Bill has come to understand all phases of our company and has been a key force in its development as a global enterprise," said Fain. "As president he will draw on his wealth of experience to strengthen our mission of serving customers as a unified team, with one focus across all disciplines and in all manufacturing operations."
