Westfall Technik’s board of directors has nominated Mark Gomulka to lead the company.
Gomulka joined the Las Vegas–based plastics manufacturer as SVP in January 2020. Before that, he led Flex’s medical and precision plastics operations for five years and earlier spent 15 years at Nypro in various global operational and leadership roles.
In those positions before joining Westfall, Gomulka worked closely with Westfall founder Brian Jones.
“I trust Mark to lead Westfall as CEO,” Jones said in a news release. “I’ve seen executives grow up in the plastics industry for a long time, and Mark knows better than anyone how to execute the integrated vision for Westfall. We’ve worked together closely for many years, and Mark has done a masterful job maturing the Westfall organization.”
The Westfall leadership team has launched or acquired 18 companies since October 2017, when New York-based private equity firms Lee Equity Partners and BlackBern Partners sponsored the Westfall Technik launch.
“I am committed to the success of our customers and teammates,” Gomulka said in the news release. “I look forward to furthering our focus on flawless execution, integrated sales and new capabilities, to attract the best new plastics technologies and talent to the Westfall family. None of this would be possible without the Westfall executive team and the support of our founder, Brian Jones.”
