Trojan Battery Names First Chief Operating Officer | Construction News

Trojan Battery Co., LLC has appointed John Beering as its chief operating officer, a new role that reflects the company's rapid growth and global expansion.

Beering brings more than 20 years of experience in leading, implementing, and improving operations across a wide variety of businesses.

Reporting to Jeff Elder, president and chief executive officer of Trojan Battery, Beering is responsible for all operations of the company, including manufacturing; environmental, health, and safety; quality; engineering; supply chain; sales; and marketing.

Trojan’s finance, legal, human resources, and market and corporate development teams will continue to report directly to Elder.

Beering is the newest executive that Trojan Battery has added to its senior leadership team to help support and implement the company’s wide-ranging product development and global sales strategies.

In February, Trojan appointed Michael Everett as senior vice president of engineering and Robert Gibson as vice president of quality. Both of them report to Beering.

“John’s breadth of engineering, operations, sales, marketing, and business-management experience will be instrumental to Trojan Battery as we enter the next phase of our corporate growth,” Elder said. “Trojan is committed to delivering unmatched deep-cycle battery technology, along with world class customer service and support, and John’s proven track record make him the ideal candidate to lead our key growth initiatives.”

Most recently, Beering was senior vice president and general manager for the Commercial Powertrain Business with Eaton, where he was responsible for commercial and product development programs, as well as all strategic initiatives globally.  Prior to that, he held other general management and marketing roles with Eaton.  He also has served in multiple sales and marketing positions at Pratt & Whitney, and in engineering and product management roles with Carrier Corp.

Beering holds a master's degree in management, marketing, and finance, and a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.
