James Schmidt has been chosen for the new role following 20 years of experience at companies like SP Industries, Millipore Sigma, Promega and Steris
G-CON, the global off-site prefabricated cleanroom systems expert, has announced that it is expanding its commercial function following the recent launch of G-CON Clean Solutions, where it is now manufacturing and selling modular components to the US market, in addition to its prefabricated solutions offering.
G-CON has appointed James Schmidt as Chief Commercial Officer, effective immediately. James joins G-CON with over 20 years’ senior leadership experience in sales and marketing in the Life Sciences industry. Prior to joining G-CON, James held sales leadership positions at SP Industries, Millipore Sigma, Promega and Steris. His accomplishments include aligning global organization and sales strategy and integrating businesses while consistently exceeding revenue targets.
As part of the strategic realignment, Dennis Powers, who joined G-CON in 2013 and was previously leading G-CON’s commercial team, will take on the complementary new role of Senior Vice President of Product and Strategy with responsibility for leading the company’s portfolio strategy, design consulting, and marketing efforts.
“We are extremely happy to have James join our team to lead our Sales organization as we grow the business,” said Anne Jones, President and CEO of G-CON. “His significant experience in both the Industrial and Life Sciences sectors adds strength to our talented team and will complement Dennis’ new role, where we place more emphasis on our portfolio and strategy, as we diversify our offerings in both prefabricated solutions and modular components.”
