NEW YORK Donald R. Golding will step down as president and chief executive officer of Hynes Industries Inc., the company announced March 14.
Jim Blair, vice president of finance and corporate treasurer, will succeed Golding in the posts effective April 1.
Golding will remain with the company as vice president of strategic development and serve in an advisory role during the transition.
Blair, a seven-year veteran of Youngstown, Ohio-based Hynes, has overseen the companys finance, information technology and human resources functions. He previously worked as controller and vice president of finance at Greenville Metals Inc., Transfer, Pa.
Blair was the perfect choice to lead Hynes Industries into another decade of success, Golding said in a statement. His in-depth understanding of financial issues will help position Hynes for continued growth.
As part of the leadership transition, Mike Giambattista has been promoted to senior vice president of marketing and sales, and Pat Montana has been named senior vice president of operations.
Hynes, which produces strip steel, roll-formed shapes and flat wire, also tapped Mark Cornman as director of finance and human resources. Cornman joins from Canfield, Ohio-based Canfield Metal Coating Corp.
