Pride Mobility Products and its Quantum Rehab division have announced two new officers.
Chuck Finn, who joined Pride in February 1998, has been named the manufacturer's new chief operating officer. In a news announcement, Pride said Finn's responsibilities would include directing the development of Pride Mobility "to ensure future growth through the attainment of short-term and long-term financial and operational goals."
Finn will oversee Pride's global manufacturing, quality, research & development, information technology, e-commerce, operational efficiency, accounts receivable/payable, purchasing and distribution departments, among others. Earlier in his tenure with Pride, Finn was involved in setting up Pride's distribution centers throughout the United States. He was promoted to VP in 2001; in 2010, he was promoted again, to senior VP, supply chain management. Last year, Finn became executive VP, product advancement and supply chain management.
Pride also announced it has hired Douglas Cummins as its new chief technology officer.
Cummins "will drive innovation, technology, efficiency and advancement throughout the company," Pride said in its announcement, adding that Cummins will "also work to ensure the technology is easy to operate and maintain, is cost efficient and 'unbreakable.'"
Cummins's résumé includes tenures with Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobil, Coca-Cola, Enron and Dell. His most recent position was as CTO for Delphi Consulting Services.
Scott Meuser, Pride's chairman/CEO, said in the announcement, "Chuck and Doug have tremendous business judgment and a common-sense approach that benefit Quantum Rehab and Pride Mobility, and allow us to continually strengthen and grow our organization. Both Chuck and Doug will be joining forces with senior management to continue Quantum and Pride's transformation as the U.S. complex rehab and retail mobility leader focused on excelling in quality product innovations and solutions, lead times, ease of doing business and ultra-lean operational infrastructure."
