Effective December 7, 2015, Patrick Redfern becomes President of Insulectro succeeding Tim Redfern who held the position for twelve years. Patrick began his professional career at Insulectro in 1998 and has also held key executive positions at LCOA and CAC. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California. He graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship.
"I am excited to continue the successful formula Insulectro has defined and implemented over the years – best-in-class suppliers, top products, geographically-diverse stocking locations in North America, and a customer-centric Service Model,” Patrick stated.
“We will continue to focus on our execution and the needs of our customers, our customers’ customers, and our suppliers,” Patrick concluded.
Tim Redfern commented, “I am looking forward to seeing the value that Patrick’s fresh perspective will bring to this role. Not only is he is an experienced executive, but he knows our business, understands the market, and the requirements of our customers and suppliers.”
Tim Redfern will become Managing Director of Redfern Partners, LLC where he will lead the efforts to identify and integrate strategic acquisitions that will utilize Insulectro’s and the other Redfern Companies’ capabilities and resources. Additionally, he will take on more responsibility for the management of the Redfern Companies’ assets and investments, inside and outside of the electronics industry.
He will remain engaged with Insulectro’s customers and suppliers in addition to remaining an officer and member of the Board of Directors. Tim began his career at Insulectro in 1992 in sales and has held a variety of management roles until assuming the top position twelve years ago.
“Insulectro has a long history of acquisition as a growth strategy. Sometimes that growth has come from acquiring whole companies, other times from adding products to our offering. Acquisitions that more fully utilize our capabilities are a priority for the Companies.
“With our newly implemented Oracle®-based ERP system and our geographical presence throughout North America, we have a solid platform of resources, corporate infrastructure, and IT capabilities to leverage and create new opportunities,” Tim Redfern stated.
Insulectro has been in the news many times this year for introducing new products for high-speed digital, rf/microwave, drill room, and flexible film applications. Earlier, Insulectro announced its foray in Printed Electronics as a single source distributor of inks, substrates, and consumables.
