Tennessee-based lead-acid battery separator, Microporous has appointed John Reeves as its chief executive officer (CEO).
The company announced last week that Reeves would be taking up the position effective immediately. In his role as CEO, the company said, Reeves would help Microporous to position itself to support customers and the lead-acid battery separating business through investments in equipment, processes, and people.
Prior to joining Microporous, Reeves held various leadership positions in private equity-owned businesses, the company indicated without disclosing the names of those companies.
Microporous has offered high-performance battery separators for over 80 years as part of American Rubber Company. The firm spun off into an independent provider of battery separators in 2013, and has since then invested in updating its systems and processes to cater to a global customer base, according to its website.
