Grundfos has named Andrew Warrington as the new president of Peerless Pump Co and its subsidiaries.
Warrington replaces Peerless Pump president and CEO Dean Douglas, who has decided to leave Peerless Pump and Grundfos for a CEO position with a non competing public company. Douglas and Warrington have worked closely together within the Peerless Pump management team for the past 11 years. Warrington has held leadership positions at Peerless Pump in the service, engineering, marketing, operations and sales functions. Most recently he has overseen the international business and the integration efforts of Peerless Pump into the global Grundfos Group.
A 20-year veteran of the pump industry, Warrington has worked at Sihi Pumps in the UK and Peerless Pump in Indianapolis, USA. He holds Bachelor and PhD degrees in engineering, is a chartered mechanical engineer and has an MBA from Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK.
Commenting on the transition, Jes Munk Hansen, president of Grundfos North America, said: “Although we are sad to say goodbye to Dean Douglas, Grundfos is delighted that we could select someone from within the team that created that success as his natural successor as president of Peerless. Andrew has done all of the top sales and operations jobs in Peerless; he knows the business and the people well. We expect him to be able to continue to strengthen the business and the team in the future. We are even more excited about the growth potential Peerless enjoys within the Grundfos Group.”
