Effective immediately Tom Christie has been promoted to President of ATEK Metal Technologies. Since joining the company last November, Tom has quickly immersed himself in the operation and done a great job to really learn the business. For the past few months heavy reliance has been placed on Tom to be the “defacto” leader in New Hampton. Tom has demonstrated strong leadership skills and the ability to organize teams on a multitude of initiatives and drive accountability through to completion. The ownership team is thrilled to have Tom leading this organization and feel that his vision for the company and the employees is in lockstep with theirs.
Tom joined the ATEK team this past November and was responsible for all engineering and quality aspects of the business. Prior to coming to ATEK, Tom worked for 13 years with Lincoln Industries, and before that he spent 22 years with Whirlpool. Tom and his wife Carmen have settled into Waverly, IA.
