Standby power executive John McClure has joined Modern Group Ltd. to head up its power systems division.
“We are thrilled to have an industry veteran join our team and help us grow our standby power generation business,” said Paul Farrell, chief operations officer of the Bristol, Pa.-based organization.
With more than 25 years in the generator industry, McClure will oversee seven technicians, two sales representatives and an office staff handling the marketing and service of power generation systems in eastern Pennsylvania, central/southern New Jersey and Delaware.
McClure entered the industry in 1984 and later became a service manager for a Cummins dealer, then founding McClure Power Systems. He gained success by servicing such major accounts as Comcast, Atlantic City Electric and the American Red Cross. His philosophy of intense product knowledge and the ability to respond to customers’ needs under the most unpredictable circumstances made his company attractive for an acquisition offer from Modern Group Ltd. in 2007, according to the company.
“I am very excited to join Modern’s power generation team. Modern is a great company and I look forward to leading its efforts in growing this critical business segment,” McClure said.
McClure replaces Steve Lecatsas who has become the branch manager at Modern Group’s Bristol, Pa., headquarters.
