Evolution within Management Team Positions Company Well for Continued Growth
St. Petersburg, FL, USA, January 6, 2020. Sensidyne, LP, manufacturer and global distributor of industrial health & safety equipment, announces that Howard Mills has been elevated from President to the new role of CEO/CFO and Glenn Warr has assumed the role of President/COO. Both leaders have been key drivers of Sensidyne’s progress and growth for more than two decades.
Mr. Mills has been an integral part of Sensidyne over the last 33 years, holding a number of finance and operating leadership roles and that of President for the past 13 years. Mr. Warr has been a major contributor to Sensidyne’s growth for 23 years, the majority of those years as Vice President, strategically driving Sales, Marketing, Business Development, and Engineering.
Two Other Leaders Promoted
Sensidyne’s two current Product Line Managers have been promoted to newly-formed roles of Business Unit Managers, assuming direct-line accountability for overseeing the development of their respective business units, including sales and product line management. Steve Bornoff will continue running the Fixed Gas Detection Systems and Micro Air Pumps segments, and Aaron Apostolico will continue managing the Health & Safety segment of the company.
Mr. Bornoff has been at Sensidyne for four years growing the fixed gas detection business. He started his career serving 8 years in the U.S. Navy, and then spent a decade and a half at Honeywell before joining Sensidyne. Mr. Apostolico, a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH, CSP, CIEC), has been at Sensidyne since 2017 managing products in both the occupational and environmental safety markets. Most recently prior to Sensidyne, he was a corporate industrial hygiene consultant.
“These changes serve to better position Sensidyne to achieve our long-term objectives and to provide exciting new challenges and opportunities for the management team and all of our employees,” says Mr. Mills, CEO/CFO. “Improving our bench strength and providing opportunity for growth within the Company are critical success factors in our organization.”
Florian Schauenburg, CEO of Sensidyne’s parent company, SCHAUENBURG International Group, stated “Howie and Glenn have exemplified outstanding leadership over more than a decade of challenging global business cycles. We are proud of Sensidyne’s success and supportive of their new roles towards continued future growth and success.”
