Powerex Announced New CEO/COO

Joe Wolf has been appointed as President and Chief Executive Officer. He will succeed the outgoing CEO, John Hall, who has retired. Joe has been serving as a Vice President and the company’s Chief Financial Officer since 2016.

Joe joined Powerex as a Sr. Financial Analyst in 2008. He steadily progressed in leadership roles during his tenure at the company rising from Controller to Director of Finance to CFO and now CEO. He is the right executive to lead the company during the challenging post-COVID-19 recovery and is pro-actively pursuing numerous opportunities to solidify Powerex as a premier supplier and trusted industry partner. He is equally committed to personal and professional growth of the highly dedicated Powerex Team members.

In a related move, Ron Yurko has been promoted from company Vice-President to Chief Operating Officer (COO). Ron joined Powerex in 2007 as an Engineering Manager. Ron was promoted to running the R&T Business Unit in 2010. In subsequent years he has taken on more responsibility in Sales and in helping forge company strategy. His strong Engineering and Manufacturing background, his Sales abilities, and his reputation with Powerex customers makes him an ideal choice for COO.
