It is with great pride and excitement that Haws Corp. announces the hiring of board member Chuck Gruber as president. Gruber is the first Haws Corp. president from outside of the founding family, dating back to 1906.
"Chuck's contributions to the Corporation as a Board member were significant and insightful from his first meeting. His curiosity, energy and enthusiasm brought a new perspective to the Board and his decision to come on as President, to lead the organization, brings us an opportunity to reach new levels of performance," said Tom White, chairman, CEO, and former president of Haws Corp.
Gruber's established track record of organizational growth, development of leading industrial solutions, and global expansion into new markets dovetails with Haws' global growth agenda. Haws aims to expand current markets with new product offerings, enhanced value propositions, and expand the Haws global footprint with proven product lines.
A chemical engineering graduate of the New Jersey Institute of Technology — exactly 25 years after his dad — Gruber received his Master of Business Administration from Temple University in Philadelphia.
Gruber, a long-established leader in the safety corridor, began his career at Rohm and Haas Corp. followed by executive posts at Elemica, GAF, Cannon Equipment and Safe Reflections. In all his roles, his attention to safety resulted in significant, sometimes double-digit improvement in on-site safety metrics within weeks of his arrival.
