Five industry heavyweights deepen company’s leadership while new facility accommodates expanding operations
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Infinitum Electric, creator of the breakthrough air-core motor, today announced the expansion of its leadership team with the recent appointments of Jack Powell as Director of Operations, Michele Feria as Director of Marketing, Ramon Guitart as Director of Engineering, Ed Carignan as Director of PCB Engineering and Stephen Mathew as Director of Product Management.
Infinitum Electric also announced it will move its headquarters to a new facility at the end of April to support the company’s rapid growth and expanding operations.
