Bretford Manufacturing has appointed Chris Petrick as its new chief executive officer, effective immediately. In his new role, Petrick is responsible for leading the 61-year-old business, which comprises nearly 350 employees, 450,000 square feet of production space, and thousands of technology furniture products for schools and businesses.

"Bretford is a family business–my father and uncle started the company in 1948, and my brother and I have continued ownership," said Dave Petrick, former CEO and current chairman of Bretford, in a statement. "While I intend to remain in the business, the time has come to transition this role to the next generation in our family. Chris understands Bretford to the core, having worked in nearly all the departments over the years. His experience and leadership talent are exactly what Bretford partners and customers need in order to continue thriving in this new decade."

Chris Petrick joined Bretford in 1991, and since then has served as director of sales and director of marketing, and held several territory, product, and marketing management positions. According to the company, he was an integral part of the team that brought Bretford into the Contract market space.

Mike Briggs will remain in his role as president of Bretford, concentrating his efforts on the sales, marketing, and customer service support functions within the business.
