Inovar, Inc., a full-service EMS provider, announces that Kent Alder, former CEO of a multibillion dollar tech firm, has joined its Board of Directors.

Blake Kirby, Inovar’s CEO, said, “Kent was invited to join the Inovar Board because his values and beliefs, combined with a “no nonsense” approach to business, are directly aligned with the company’s mission, which is to improve the lives of our customers’ customer and the Inovar family.”

Alder accepted the position because he believes in Inovar’s business strategy and customer-focused culture. He added that the company has invested – and will continue to invest – in the equipment and people necessary to stay ahead of customer needs.

“I personally know Blake and the executive team, and they have the highest level of integrity,” Alder said. “I have confidence in their commitment and ability to execute the strategy. Additionally, their customer-focused culture fits my belief about how a business should be operated.

Inovar’s high-tech strategy and the ability to execute differentiates it from competitors and enables the company to provide value to customers, generating growth and solid returns. Alder added that Inovar is well positioned in the industry and has a proven history of success and growth.

Inovar manufactures some of the most complex electronic products in the world that require the highest quality standards. As a member of the Board, Alder works closely with the company to ensure that it has the resources and focus it needs, as well as a strong team in place to succeed.

As a Board member, I hope to provide value by using my 35 years of industry experience to assist Inovar in the following areas: executing an effective strategy and adjusting to market changes, operating at the highest level of productivity and efficiency, and ensuring our company culture generates the highest level of customer service and employee motivation,” he added.

Alder has a strong background of growing and improving the organizations he leads by building high performing executive teams that focus on the customer. He brings many years of success and experience to Inovar. He currently is the Executive Chairman of Wasatch Photonics, on the board of TTM Technologies, and previously he was the CEO of TTM Technologies.
