WesTech Engineering Inc. of Salt Lake City has appointed Ralph Cutler as president. The company’s board made the announcement in a release. Cutler had been WesTech’s vice president of industrial products and sales and assumed his new role on July 1. Rex Plaizier, who has been serving as both chief executive officer and president, will continue in his role as CEO.
“The board has decided to separate the duties of CEO and president to meet the growing demands of both positions and to support WesTech’s continued growth,” said Plaizier. “After a comprehensive search to identify the best choice for president, they selected Ralph, who has been an employee-owner with WesTech for more than 35 years. His broad technical expertise, coupled with in-depth operational knowledge and superior project execution for customers, makes him uniquely qualified to take this position. We are excited to watch him drive the company forward.”
