Alert Tech SMT Welcomes Don Adam as CFO

| News

We are excited to welcome Don Adam to Alert Tech SMT as our new Chief Financial Officer. As a member of our leadership team, Don will work alongside Founder and CEO Marge Laney, VP of Sales and Product Brian Laney and Manager of Operations James Keeland.

A veteran of the electronics manufacturing industry, Don brings over 30 years of international financial and management experience to Alert Tech SMT. Throughout his career, he has worked as a senior manager for KPMG International, a global network of professional audit and tax advisory services; controller for American Homestar Corporation, a manufacturer and retailer of mobile homes; CFO for Specialty Components, Inc., a manufacturer of specialty pipe fittings and flanges; and — most recently — CFO for Benchmark Electronics, a leading global EMS company. This wide-ranging expertise will help drive our mission of providing a streamlined domestic manufacturing process forward.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about Don joining the team,” said Brian. “His expertise and leadership will help us support our customers who are ready to reshore their production with a true partner who puts them first.”

As supply chain issues, quality concerns and extended delay continue to create challenges companies with overseas manufacturing, many businesses are looking for more efficient solutions — including moving production back to the U.S. This process, called reshoring, is something we are uniquely qualified to support.

Alert Tech SMT know the challenges firsthand — we moved our production from China to our in-house facilities in Houston, Texas — and work diligently to provide our customers with personalized attention and support. “Our customers know they are our priority, and we are routinely shocking people with the value we bring,” said Brian.  

Our emphasis on putting the client first is what resonated with Don, a longtime advocate of quality service and support. “Customer service drives the work Alert Tech SMT does. But that’s not all. This is an extremely talented team, backed by strong fundamentals, systems and world-class equipment,” he said. Don’s vision and goals for his role also center around our customers. “I am confident that as we grow, we will continue to serve as a trusted and truly valuable partner for our customers,” he said. 

And, he’s in good company. With Don on board, we are proud to expand our roster of experienced contract manufacturing and electronics manufacturing service professionals. Learn more about leadership team and company mission.
