CPP welcomes Tom McGimpsey to board of directors

CPP, Inc. is pleased to announce that Tom McGimpsey has joined our board of directors.

Tom currently serves as Executive Vice President of Corporate Development and general legal counsel for Advanced Energy (AE), an international company that, like CPP, calls Fort Collins, Colorado, home. Advanced Energy develops power and control technologies for thin film manufacturers of such products as semiconductors, solar, glass, flat panel display, and industrial coatings.

“Tom will bring a valuable set of skills to CPP’s board of directors,” says CEO Oliver Napp. “With his experience and knowledge base as an executive and member of other boards of directors, Tom is a great fit for our strategic vision as the world leader in wind engineering services.”

Prior to joining Advanced Energy, Tom served in legal and executive positions with First Data Corporation, McDATA Corporation, US WEST, and Software Technology, Inc., in addition to private practice consulting and advising. He holds an MBA from Colorado State University, a law degree from the University of Colorado, and a Bachelor of Science in computer science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

“I am excited to join CPP’s board of directors and look forward to working with this organization’s exceptionally talented team,” Tom says. “Very few companies have this kind of résumé, and even fewer specialize in the kinds of sophisticated engineering services that CPP provides.”

Tom joins Oliver Napp, Dr. David Banks, and Dr. Ron Petersen as a member of CPP’s board. We’re happy to have Tom on our team and look forward to a productive working relationship.
