Identco hires vice president of global sales

Identco, a manufacturer of labelling solutions for the power equipment, electronics, transportation and general industrial sector, has hired materials supply executive Brian Kady as vice president of global sales. He officially joined the company in November, and will oversee sales efforts in the four distinct business units. He also is responsible for sales activities for Reliance Label Solutions, another company within Industrial Labels Holdings Corp.

Most recently, Mr Kady served as vice president of sales at Pregis Polymask, where he drove double-digit sales growth for the protective films company. Before that, he gained adhesives and coatings experience during tenures with both Avery and 3M, two of the largest entities in that sector. He also has served as director of sales — performance adhesives group for Mactac.

Identco has been steadily adding to its portfolio of labelling solutions, which it designs, manufactures and supplies for sectors such as automotive components, electronics applications, industrial machinery and tools, and commercial transportation. The company also recently introduced VortexID, an automated wire-marking system.

Brad Zechman, CEO of Identco, commenting on the new appointment, said, Brian is a people-first yet results-driven business development executive with a track record of expanding revenue growth and extending market share. As Identco continues to bolster and broaden our solutions portfolio across each of our four main business units, Brian's industry experience and leadership qualities will be a tremendous asset.

Mr Kady earned an MBA from Walsh College in Troy, Michigan, and a bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University in Mt Pleasant, Michigan.
