Ryan has 30 years’ of experience in driving revenue growth and profitability and has led companies involved in textile manufacturing, linen and uniform rental, and management consulting. He will bring to the position a rare combination of veteran leadership experience and hands-on, operational skills, said David Tingue, CEO of MODRoto's parent company, Tingue, Brown & Co., in a press release.
“J.R. has delivered measurable results for several different companies in a variety of markets, he's built our TBR Associates consulting firm from square one to a national presence, and I'm looking forward to seeing his imprint on MODRoto,” Tingue said in the release, referring to Ryan's position as president of TBR Associates, which specializes in process improvement, Lean Six Sigma, management development, and other services. Ryan will continue serving in that role.
At MODRoto, Ryan spearheads an expansive organization with four plants nationally that is known for its product innovation and was recently ranked the 16th largest rotational molder in North America by Plastics News. Ryan plans to focus on providing a wide and diverse selection of high quality bulk containers with the superior customer service, speedy production rates and competitive cost structure required to meet the needs of the material handling industry. “MODRoto has a proud history dating back to the Meese organization, known brand names, and hundreds of dedicated team members who understand what we're trying to achieve for our customers,” Ryan said. “It's a privilege to serve in this position and take on additional responsibility within the Tingue Family of Companies.”
