The board of directors of Gougeon Brothers, Inc, appointed Alan R. Gurski as company president. Gurski has a Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University. He worked 10 years as a commercial construction project manager before taking a position in Gougeon's marketing department in 2007. Gurski was promoted to executive vice president following the retirement of Grant Urband in 2008.
The employee-owned, family-run company is based in Bay City, Michigan and manufactures WEST SYSTEM and PRO-SET Brand epoxies. The firm celebrated its 40th business anniversary this year.
Company founder and chairman Meade Gougeon said he is delighted to place leadership of the business in the hands of the next generation. "I have confidence in Alan's capabilities," said Gougeon. "With this change, we're looking forward to our next 40 years. We're poised for bigger and better things for our company, our customers, our suppliers and our community."
Gurski's first act as company president was to appoint an executive staff to aid in the guidance of the corporation. They are vice president of sales and distribution Gerald Briggs, CFO Joanne Gradowski, marketing director Grace Ombry, operations manager Glenn Sinicki and technical director Jeff Wright.
Gurski replaces retiring president Robert H. Monroe, who joined the company in 1976 and has served admirably as president since 1997.
