Concept Machine Tool Sales LLC has announced the appointment of Andrew Hecker as its new Chief Executive Officer.

With over 30 years' experience in industrial manufacturing, Hecker succeeds previous CEO Craig Conlon in a planned succession for the business that Conlon led for 40 years.

"I am thrilled to join Concept and lead a great team. The company represents the premier brands in machining, additive manufacturing and metrology. I am excited to help our many customers grow their businesses with increased engagement from Concept, an organization that can support the many needs of industrial and precision manufacturers," said Hecker.

Conlon will remain on the Concept Board of Directors and will focus his time on strategic customer and vendor relationships and sales growth. Conlon said, "I am very excited to watch Concept's growth with this infusion of new talent. Andrew has the experience to grow the company. It has been a pleasure and honor growing Concept into a world-class business in partnership with our customers and suppliers."

Hecker most recently led the commercial function at Lord Corporation, a $1 billion manufacturer of parts and materials for the aerospace, heavy machinery and automotive industries. Privately held Lord was sold to Parker Hannifin in late 2019. Hecker previously served in general management and leadership roles at industrial manufacturing companies Valspar and ArvinMeritor.
