Leadership re-ordered at Purcell Systems

Spokane Valley manufacturing company Purcell Systems has shuffled its managers, elevating company co-founder Pete Chase to a new board role, and promoting Lyle Jordan to chief executive officer.
Jordan, who joined Purcell Systems in 2007, will also hold the position of company president.
Former CEO Chase now holds the title executive chairman of the board, according to a recent news release. Chase will lead “strategic development of new markets, products and partnerships,” the release said.
Before joining Purcell Systems as chief operating officer, Jordan was involved in restructuring two companies, Western Electronics LLC, and iTerra Communications LLC.
Jordan will be responsible for increasing sales for Purcell Systems’ international business unit.
Purcell also announced the appointment of Ron Nichoalds as vice president for North America sales. He replaces Barry Kantner, who becomes vice president for new strategic account development.
Also, Rajiv Dabir, currently director of product management, will become vice president of market development in the first quarter of 2010.
