SJE announced that Bjorn Haldorsen has joined the leadership team as president of the Engineered Division. His position is new to the company and will emphasize customer focus and growth execution. Bjorn’s experience in running businesses in similar industries with comparable strategic focus aligns well with SJE.
“Our Engineered Division has seen significant growth over the past few years,” says Dave Thomas, president and CEO of SJE. “Having Bjorn join SJE as the Division President will provide additional focus as we continue to expand our leadership in providing controls and automation solutions to our customers.”
Bjorn has more than 28 years of leadership experience in the industrial manufacturing sector. Before joining SJE, Bjorn held the position of president of North America at Colson Group.
