Brett Tennar, the former plant manager and VP of operations for Lubrication Specialties Inc. has been promoted to president.
The announcement was made recently by LSI’s founder and CEO Chris Gabrelcik, who said relinquishing day-to-day operations to Tennar will allow him to pursue his entrepreneurial and scientific interests.
Hired in 2016 as LSI’s plant manager, Tennar was responsible for ordering raw materials, all production, shipping, receiving, and participating in weekly manager meetings and staff meetings to advise on plant progress. Mid-year in 2018, Tennar was promoted to VP of operations where he was more directly involved in human resources, sales and distribution, marketing, accounting and planning.
“It is with the highest confidence that I am turning over the day-to-day operations to Brett,” Gabrelcik said. “Brett understands LSI, its products, people, and purpose from years of working with the company in critical roles. He is a strategist with real world experience that is crucial in determining what can be accomplished with existing or new resources.”
“I am excited to be able to lead such an innovative and collaborative company. The core to LSI’s success has in large part been its employees because of their initiative, creative thinking and can-do attitude. I look forward to this challenging new opportunity as we chart a new level of growth for LSI,” said Tennar.
Lubrication Specialties Inc. is the manufacturer of Hot Shot’s Secret brand of performance additives, oils, greases and lubrication products.
