Michael Kelly Named Wohler CEO

Wohler has promoted Michael Kelly to president-CEO, effective immediately. Kelly joined the company in January 2007 and most recently was the executive vice president of finance and planning. He succeeds Carl Dempsey.

During that time, the company said, Kelly was instrumental in two acquisitions and, in his planning capacity, helped develop strategies and tactics in all areas including design, engineering, marketing, sales, manufacturing and post-sales service.

As president-CEO, he will focus on completing development of the iAM line and adding to the engineering team in order to promote further product development.

After nine years as Wohler president-CEO, and 21 total years with the company, Dempsey is leaving his day-to-day operating role to pursue other interests, the company said. He is expected to stay on Wohler’s board of directors.

“Our shift toward software-defined solutions ensures that Wohler customers will continue to have the leading-edge tools they need to work more efficiently and effectively than ever,” Kelly said. “The market’s positive response to iAM-MADI confirms this strategy, and we look forward to launching additional iAM products in the first quarter of 2016.”
