New Leadership for Amesbury and Truth Hardware Following Merger

Window & Door
January 9, 2014

Tyman Plc, parent company of Amesbury and Truth Hardware, has appointed new leadership to integrate both businesses following its acquisition of Truth in July 2013.

Jeff Graby, currently president of Truth Hardware, will assume the role of president and CEO for the combined Amesbury and Truth organizations, effective immediately. Graby joined Truth in 2012 and oversaw the divestment of the business from Melrose Plc to Tyman Plc. Prior to that, he held a number of senior management positions within Interface Solutions, RAM Industries and FES Systems Inc.

Mike McCann will join the company to oversee sales activity across the Amesbury and Truth brands, as senior vice president of sales, starting January 13, 2014. McCann brings extensive sales and marketing experience from senior roles with Toshiba, Xerox, and most recently, Guardian Industries, where he was VP of Global Sales.

Jonathan Petromelis, currently CEO of Amesbury, has made the decision to further his career outside of the Tyman Group, and will advise on integration initiatives before leaving the business.

"I am confident that Jeff Graby and Mike McCann will continue to successfully develop our business within the North American market and I wish them both well in their new positions,” says Louis Eperjesi, CEO of Tyman.
