On May 7, 2018, Christopher Hughes joined Reyco Granning as the new VP of Finance.
“Christopher’s extensive experience in process generation and best practices that improve profitability and cost control is an asset to Reyco Granning. We will rely heavily on him as we continue to strengthen our organization as a customized suspension system solution provider for the industry,” said President John Stuart.
Hughes has 24 years’ experience in manufacturing, having begun his career in 1994 at Armstrong/Triangle Pacific Corp as an audit supervisor and rose to the position of Group Controller.

Christopher replaces Tracy Carll in this role as Tracy was promoted to her new position as VP of Supply Chain & IT. “Tracy has demonstrated cross-functional leadership and is particularly adept in contract negotiations and cost reduction efforts. She was the ideal candidate to lead our Supply Chain & IT groups,” said Stuart.
