Pilot Chemical, a maker of cleaning and metalworking chemicals, has named Mike Clark, currently the company’s COO, as president. Clark will oversee implementation of Pilot’s investment strategy, and continue to report to Pilot CEO Pam Butcher.

Pilot plans to “invest millions in the development and commercialization of new technologies over then next four years.” This includes the expansion of Pilot’s facility at Middletown, Ohio, to test and validate technologies prior to commercialization. It also includes investment in recruiting talent, digitalizing operations, and information technology upgrades.

“Mike brings fresh eyes and experience with turning strategy into operational and financial success,” Butcher says.

As part of the shift, Catherine Ochterski has been named vice president/human resources; Mike Bizzaro has been named director/manufacturing; David Waismann has been named director/digitalization; and Mark Moser has been named director/information technology.
