Reslewic Appointed as Global CEO of Electro Rent

September 21, 2018, 07:14 AM

Electro Rent announced the appointment of Tom Reslewic as Global CEO.
Reslewic is a seasoned executive from the test and measurement industry and joins from Teledyne, where he was Group President for Defense Electronics and Electronic Measurement Instruments, a $1 billion operation. Prior to his tenure at Teledyne, he was CEO at Test and Measurement manufacturer LeCroy Corporation for over 10 years.

Electro Rent is a provider of test equipment services. Its rental, lease, sales and asset management solutions have served firms in communications, aerospace and defense, automotive, energy, education and general electronics since 1965.

Reslewic will succeed current Electro Rent CEO Nigel Brown who is retiring from day-to-day service but will remain active as Chairman and a strategic advisor to the company.

Over the last 20 years, Brown has been instrumental in driving the company’s growth both organically and via mergers and acquisitions, expanding its footprint, creating industry-leading equipment services, and most recently steering the successful combination of the Microlease and Electro Rent businesses.

“I’m delighted to welcome Tom to the team at a very exciting time in the evolution of the business,” Brown said. “His exemplary commercial and technical background, combined with his high energy and relevant industry experience, will help guide the next stage of development for Electro Rent.”

Platinum Equity Partner Louis Samson added, “We want to thank Nigel for all of his contributions and look forward to continuing our partnership with him in his new role. He has been a positive force in the industry and has positioned Electro Rent well for future growth driven by areas such as 5G, the Internet of Things and asset management. We now look forward to partnering with Tom to capitalize further on this potential."

Reslewic will be based in Electro Rent’s headquarters located in West Hills, CA, and will assume the Global CEO role at the beginning of October.
