Foam components and finished products supplier FXI has appointed Harold Earley president and chief executive officer. Earley joined the Media, Pennsylvania-based company in 2009 as executive vice president and chief financial officer. In 2016, he became chief operating officer, as well.
He replaces John Cowles who resigned to pursue an opportunity outside the industry. Cowles had served as president and CEO since 2011. FXI has yet to announce who replaces Earley as CFO and COO.
Commenting on his new role, Earley said: “FXI is the industry leader in quality and innovation in foam products used in many industries. It is with great pride that I assume this new position with our company. We have a great team that works hard every day to deliver for our customers. Together, we’ll continue to expand and grow our business in our various segments.”
FXI chair John Georges added: “Harold has been a key member of our senior leadership team for many years, and we are excited about this new and expanded opportunity for him to work with our customers and employees. We are grateful to John Cowles for his many years of contributions to the company. We wish him well in his new endeavors.”
