DIT-MCO International, a leading designer and manufacturer of electrical wiring test equipment, announces the appointment of David Shier to the position of President, effective immediately. Current President and CEO John Kusek will remain CEO as he transitions the day-to-day management of the company to Shier.
Shier joined DIT-MCO in May of 2020, serving in the newly created role of Chief Technology Officer for eight months prior to being named President. Before joining DIT-MCO, he was the President and CEO of Shier Solutions, which provided hand-held wiring analyzers and software solutions to the wiring industry.
Mr. Shier has a long history in the wiring harness test business, including a number of years with California-based CK Technologies, first as Director of Sales and later as Vice President, Product & Test Strategy. “I have spent more than 30 years in this industry directly competing with DIT-MCO, so I have known and respected the excellent reputation the company has maintained with its customers,” said Shier. “I’m excited for the opportunity to lead this great company as we develop new products and services that will assure DIT-MCO remains the dominant leader in the wire/harness testing industry.”
Mr. Kusek welcomes this transition, stating, “There’s scarcely anyone in our relatively close-knit industry who’s not aware of David’s expertise in all matters relating to automated wire testing. I have been most impressed with his contributions since he joined DIT-MCO and feel confident that I will be leaving DIT-MCO in very capable hands upon my upcoming retirement.”
