Southland Industries announced that it has named Ted Lynch, an 18-year veteran of the firm, to serve as the new President of the design – build – maintain mechanical engineering company, effective immediately. Within the next two years, Lynch will take over the reins as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Southland.
Lynch assumes the role of president from current President and CEO Andy Fimiano, who has been Southland’s President and CEO since 2001. Fimiano said the interim two-year period is by design, to provide for a seamless leadership transition that allows him and Lynch to work closely together to move the company forward.
Lynch began as an intern with Southland in 1993 while completing his Ph.D. requirements in Architectural Engineering at Penn State. He has served in numerous positions within the firm over the years, serving most recently as Regional President of the Southwest and Mid-Atlantic Divisions. During his tenure, Lynch led a struggling Mid-Atlantic Division into the success it is today.
