Beginning the search in July 2017, Zach Price and his team worked closely with the Director of Human Resources and Vice President of Operations through the entire process. Working from a position of strength in the marketplace, TRG developed and executed a strong search plan of industrial operations leaders, identifying candidates who have the right technical background and also a strong desire to be in the North Carolina region.
