Mr. Heiner Kammann, Chairman of the Board of Directors of WECO Electrical Connectors Inc. is pleased to officially announce the appointment of Michel Alary as the new President and CEO of WECO Global. Bernard Pinet, former President & CEO at WECO since 2014, has been supporting with the transition in the last six months. He is leaving for a well-deserved retirement. His legacy at WECO will continue beyond his time there, as he hands over a corporation that is now operationally more integrated internationally than ever before.
Michel Alary has more than 30 years of senior management experience, including a decade of strategic development and plan execution at national and international levels at well-known tech companies. He joined WECO in 2012 as Supply Chain Director and was appointed to VP Global Operations in 2015. Mr. Alary oversaw global manufacturing, the company’s supply chain strategy and the various continuous improvement initiatives. He was also instrumental in providing leadership and guidance to achieve best-in-class safety, quality, productivity, and cost performance for three operating units of WECO.
Michel Alary will focus on the continued success of the company globally as he guides WECO through the advent of new technologies (ie: artificial intelligence) and business opportunities. His ability to build high-performing teams, his deep knowledge of WECO’s environmental technology matters and his drive to succeed will ensure WECO’s continued growth to maintain its position as one of the top leading providers of electrical connectors and connection systems in the global market.
“Michel is the right leader for WECO,” said Kammann, WECO Electrical Connectors Inc.’ Chairman of the Board. “Michel’s extensive leadership background and technical skills will continue to benefit WECO by strengthening channel partnerships, develop strategic alliances and expand our international sales presence. We trust his strong leadership experience will help focus WECO on its quest at strengthening its global market presence.”
