Major Wire Announces a Retirement, Two Appointments


Major Wire Industries Limited, a Haver & Boecker company, announced the retirement of Gary Pederson as the vice president of sales after 17 years of loyal service.

The company also announced the appointment of two new vice presidents. James Siler was appointed to the position of vice president of sales for North America and André Mathieu as vice president of global business development.

“Major Wire has grown significantly under Gary’s leadership,” said Alain Durand, president and CEO of Major Wire. “We have been the pioneer who introduced vibrating wire screens to the aggregate industry. We thank Gary for all he has done and wish him a well-deserved and fulfilling retirement,” added Durand.

Siler was previously sales director for the United States and has a deep knowledge of the industry and of Major Wire’s dealer network. “I’m confident that James will help us achieve a new level of success in North America and build upon the strong foundation Gary created,” commented Durand.

Mathieu brings more than 25 years of experience in international business development and market strategy within the construction, industrial and mining industries. “André will be a key asset in helping to make Major become the strong global player we aim to be,” said Durand.
