Mr. Wilby served previously as president and CEO.
In addition, J. Nicholas Filler has been promoted to president and chief operating officer. He has served as COO since 2007.
The co-founders noted in their announcement that, since they are no longer involved in the daily operations of the company, this new alignment allows for full-time representation in these two critically important positions and will provide the leadership to ensure that Argotec continues its record of steady growth far into the future.
Both Mr. Barnes and Mr. Wolkenbreit will remain on the board of directors and stay involved in the company's long term strategic planning.
