Todd Gleason has succeeded Dennis Sadlowski as chief executive officer of Ceco Environmental Corp.

Gleason comes to Ceco from Scientific Analytics, a private equity-backed, predictive analytic technologies and services company, where he was president and CEO. Prior to Scientific Analytics, Gleason served as senior vice president and corporate officer at Pentair.

“Todd is a highly dynamic and creative thinker who brings exceptional experience and proven leadership to Ceco,” said Ceco chairman Jason DeZwirek. “We believe Todd brings unique skills and experiences to envision, articulate and execute the next chapter in Ceco’s future. On behalf of the board and the entire Ceco team, we look forward to Todd’s leadership.”

“We want to thank Dennis for his dedication and integrity during his time at Ceco, both as CEO and as a member of the board,” added DeZwirek. “Ceco is much stronger and in a better financial position due to Dennis’ steady hand and operational leadership. Dennis was instrumental in Ceco significantly reducing its debt, strengthening its leadership team and implementing strong processes and overall operational rigour. The entire Ceco family extends their thanks to Dennis.”

Gleason will also replace Sadlowski as a member of the Ceco Environmental board of directors. Sadlowski will remain as an advisor to the company until the end of the year to assist in the transition.
