New CEO appointed at RTI
Control and automation company, RTI has announced the employment of Mark Derus as its new chief executive officer.
This appointment follows the decision of former CEO, Ed McConaghay to step down from a leadership role into an advisory role.
Derus will focus on driving global business growth as well as expanding the company’s commercial market presence.
He will also continue building on initiatives the company has already successfully implemented such as three-year warranties, robust training programmes, and the creation of a global Dealer Experience team.
“Mark has an extensive background in leading technology-driven companies, combined with finance and business development expertise,” said Kevin Marty, chief technology officer and co-founder, RTI.
“His track record of leadership at RTI and other successful companies made Mark the obvious choice to take over the CEO role.”
Derus has had the role of chief financial officer with RTI since 2017 and has a long history of successfully executing business strategy, leading mergers and acquisitions, partnering with key businesses, and guiding companies through overall business growth.
“As a team, our focus is on being the best control solution for professional integrators,” commented Derus. “Moving forward, we will continue to innovate by listening to our customers’ needs and work hard to provide them with world-class products and support.”
