TWINSBURG, Ohio—Q Holding Co. has appointed Thomas Hook as its CEO.
Hook replaces Randy Ross, who led the company since 2010 and, according to his LinkedIn profile, will continue to serve as a member of its board.
"It is a distinct honor to join Q Holding and lead the next phase of transformative growth for the company," Hook said in a statement. "I am delighted to partner with both 3i and the Q leadership team to drive the company's strategic growth plans. Q's extensive engineered materials and manufacturing capabilities provide a strong foundation to aggressively expand in the health care and industrial markets."
The firm, Hook said, brings extensive operational experience across multiple industries, most recently in the medical technology markets. He served as president and CEO of Integer Holdings Corp., a medical device outsource manufacturer. Q said Integer's revenue grew to $1.4 billion, up from $200 million when he took over, through a combination of organic and acquisitive growth.
Prior to Integer, Hook held engineering and executive roles with Duracell, VanOwen Group, General Electric, CTI Molecular Imaging and began his career as a nuclear engineer in the U.S. Navy.
"We are excited to be partnering with Tom to continue to build Q," Richard Relyea, managing director of 3i North America, the private equity owner of Q, said in a statement. "We are confident that under his leadership, the company will further advance its position as the leading global supplier of highly engineered elastomeric components and devices for the high growth healthcare and electrical management markets."
Q Holding is the parent company of QSR, Qure Medical and Quadra Tooling & Automation. The company focuses on silicone manufacturing.
