Harmar Names New CEO

Steven E. Dawson has been announced as the new CEO of Harmar Mobility.

In a Dec. 9 news announcement, Harmar said Dawson had also been named to the company’s board of directors.

In announcing Dawson’s hiring, the manufacturer noted Dawson’s experience, including “leadership roles managing and executing transformation, growth and development of organizations across a variety of industries. He brings to the company deep operational and leadership expertise, a strong financial background and success in leading business development teams.”

Jeffrey A. Lipsitz, managing partner at Cortec Group, Harmar's controlling shareholder, said of the appointment, “We are excited that we were able to recruit Steve to lead Harmar. We had worked with Steve on another investment that was very successful and were impressed with his focus, high energy and ability to lead and develop teams. As CEO, Steve will focus on continuing the company’s efforts to improve product quality, improve the customer experience, and drive growth.” 

Dawson said, “It is an honor to join Harmar, a company with a proud history of designing and manufacturing products to improve the lives of those with mobility and accessibility issues. With strong market demographics and Harmar’s industry leading product offering, we are very well positioned to take this business to the next level.” 

Dawson replaces Drew McCartney, who was named Harmar’s president/CEO in May 2014.
