Entek has selected Kimberly Medford as its new president. The announcement was made by Larry Keith, CEO of the Lebanon, Ore.-based manufacturer of twin-screw extruders, turnkey systems and extrusion wear parts and components.
Medford first joined Entek in 2012 and has served as the company’s VP and general counsel. Prior to that, she served as outside counsel for Entek while she was with the law firm Troutman Sanders LLP. She is a graduate of Willamette University.
Medford takes the reins from Keith, who was serving as interim president following the retirement of Kirk Hanawalt earlier this year.
“I am excited to announce that Kim has accepted our offer to be the next president of Entek Manufacturing,” Keith said. “As our VP and general counsel, she has been an instrumental part of our management team, which together is leading our growth and success. She has been deeply involved in our global growth through mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures, as well as directly involved with various customer and supplier relationships.”
