Low Temp Industries (LTI), Inc., a leading manufacturer and designer of modular and custom serving counters, fabrication, and advanced serving technologies, recently announced two senior promotions.
Brent Myers, vice president of human resources
First, Brent Myers has taken on the role as vice president of human resources. Myers joined LTI in 2018 and will couple his extensive knowledge of human resources and collaborative style with keen leadership skills.
“We are so pleased to announce Brent’s promotion,” said Barbara Casey Lane, president of LTI. “He has demonstrated his ability to lead and is very deserving of this new role with LTI.”
Myers brings 35 years of experience in leading and developing programs to support strategic initiatives in employee retention, talent acquisition and human resource process automation, and is a proven asset to the LTI organization. With additional experience in manufacturing with glass fabrication, metal forming, automotive OEM, temperature control and food serving equipment industries, his extensive knowledge base spans healthcare, retail and business process outsourcing companies.
Myers earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Bowling Green State University and is trained in project management and lean manufacturing.
Tracy Bennett, vice president of manufacturing
Meanwhile, Tracy Bennett has been promoted to vice president of manufacturing. Bennett has been with LTI since 1998 and has the distinction of being the youngest supervisor in the history of LTI.
In his new role, he will lead efforts in improving capacity and production efficiency to meet customer demand and uphold LTI’s mission to provide the highest-caliber product delivered reliably on time. LTI’s manufacturing leads, production scheduling, maintenance, shipping/receiving and takedown will now report to Bennett.
“Tracy’s keen sense of talent management and knowledge of lean training will only help improve LTI’s process and drive forward change,” said Barbara Casey Lane, president of LTI. “He has consistently taken on more advanced roles and is the epitome of what we stand for here at LTI.”
Bennett received specialized training in 1999 to become a certified programmer on Bystronic laser equipment and became certified in Six Sigma Lean in 2019. As a member of the ‘Move Team’ for the LTI’s new building, Bennett designed the workflow and shop floor layout that the organization is currently using in their new facility.
