Sullair names new CEO

Mar. 07, 2021

Sullair, Michigan City, Ind., has appointed John Randall, currently the company’s president of Sullair Asia, as president and CEO, effective April 1. Randall succeeds Charlie Takeuchi, who has been appointed president of Tokyo-based Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems (HIES), also effective April 1.

Randall served as president of Sullair Asia for more than two years. He will relocate to the Chicago area from Suzhou, China. Prior to this role, Randall was vice president of global engineering for Sullair for nearly five years. Before joining Sullair, he held various leadership roles in his nearly 24 years with Navistar, including a three-year assignment in India, where he launched a heavy commercial vehicle platform and plant startup.

“I have been honored to be a part of the Sullair leadership team over the past six years, and I am excited and energized to lead Sullair into the next phase of our journey,” Randall said. “Together with the Sullair leadership team, and our global workforce of 1,000 employees, I will work to build on the strong foundation Charlie has put in place.”

Takeuchi joined Sullair in July 2017 as chief operating officer and was promoted to president and CEO on April 1, 2020. Takeuchi’s leadership was instrumental in the integration efforts between Sullair and Hitachi, following the acquisition in 2017.
