Corporation (Nasdaq: NANX), a technology leader in the development of advanced
nanoengineered products, today announced the appointment of Glenn Judd to vice
president of operations.
In his previous role as assistant vice president of operations and engineering,
Judd was instrumental in implementing key operational changes as the company
shifted its business strategy to adopt more of a direct sales focus. Judd kept
the team positively focused as the operations group went through a major restructuring
in the first quarter of this year, which streamlined activities and eliminated
redundant job positions. Utilizing resources more effectively and efficiently,
he skillfully transitioned the group into a leaner operating unit. Judd joined
Nanophase in 2000 after spending eight years with Eastman Kodak.
"Glenn has earned this promotion, and we are pleased we were able to fill
the position from within the company," said Nanophase president and chief
executive officer Jess Jankowski. "Glenn's leadership and innovative approach
have been instrumental in strengthening our gross margins during 2009, with
positive expectations heading into 2010. This represents another example of
how our new management team, working as a cohesive unit, is positioning our
company for sustainable growth in 2010."
