Charlotte-based SPX Flow has named Dwight Gibson as president of its food and beverage segment, effective June 6.
Gibson is taking over the position for Marc Michael, who was named president and chief executive officer of SPX Flow on Jan. 1 of this year, the company said in a statement this week.
Gibson has served as president of strategic initiatives for Ingersoll Rand’s climate segment since June 2015. He joined Ingersoll Rand, an Irish manufacturer with North American headquarters in Davidson, in 2004 and has held various positions in general management, business development and product management.
Gibson is a graduate of Howard University with an MBA from Stanford University and a master’s in international strategy and diplomacy from the London School of Economics.
“Dwight’s vast expertise in delivering customer value and his experience in Ingersoll Rand’s business operating system are key areas of strength that fit very well with our strategic initiatives and transition to an operating company,” Michael said.
SPX Corp. spun off SPX Flow as a separate company in September. SPX Flow manufactures equipment like pumps, valves and filtration systems; the remaining SPX operates as a separate infrastructure company, making and selling products like power transformers, boilers and communication systems. Both companies are headquartered in Ballantyne.
