Universal Trailer Corporation (UTC) announced that its board of directors has named Gary DiCamillo Chief Executive Officer of the company.
DiCamillo succeeds Terry Carlson who has served as Chief Executive Officer since 2011 and has accepted a position as Chief Executive Officer of a consumer products company based in the northeastern United States.
DiCamillo, Managing Partner of Eaglepoint Advisors, was engaged in 2010 to assist UTC in its successful operational and financial turnaround. He joined the board of directors in 2011 after the conclusion of that assignment. Gary DiCamillo’s previous positions include President and CEO of what is now Advantage Resourcing, a $1.6 billion group of staffing companies, Chairman and CEO of Polaroid Corporation and President of Worldwide Power Tools and Accessories at Black & Decker Corporation.
“This is the perfect time for Gary to step in as UTC’s next Chief Executive Officer,” said Ali Wambold, Chairman of UTC and a Managing Principal of Corporate Partners. “As UTC takes the next step to transform the trailer industry, his management experience and vision make him an ideal fit. He is a tremendous leader and I am sure that he will be able to unharness the vast potential of our business.”
