Prior, he held leadership positions in precision flow control and fluid management as Divisional President at Accudyne Industries, Crane Co., and Xylem, Inc. Kendall-Jones started his career in Finance with ITT Corporation, where he served in various pan-European strategy and business development roles, before transitioning to a global lean six sigma operations position.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join ISC, a company with a talented team, loyal customers, and an impressive track record,” said Kendall-Jones. “We are uniquely positioned to provide outstanding service, quality, and reliability to customers in a variety of end-markets, where mission-critical solutions are required every day.
