Tyman Plc, parent company of Amesbury and Truth Hardware, made senior management adjustments in order to integrate both businesses after the acquisition of Truth in July 2013, according to a company release.

Jeff Graby, currently president of Truth Hardware, will assume the role of president and CEO for the combined Amesbury and Truth organizations, effective immediately. Graby joined Truth in 2012 and oversaw the divestment of the business from Melrose Plc to Tyman Plc. Prior to that, he held a number of senior management positions within Interface Solutions, RAM Industries and FES Systems Inc., according to the release.

Mike McCann will join the company to oversee sales activity across Amesbury and Truth brands, as senior vice president of sales, starting Jan. 13, 2014. McCann brings extensive sales and marketing experience from senior roles with Toshiba, Xerox, and most recently Guardian Industries, where he was VP of Global Sales.

Jonathan Petromelis, currently CEO of Amesbury, has made the decision to further his career outside of the Tyman Group, and will advise on integration initiatives before leaving the business, according to the release.

"I am confident that Jeff Graby and Mike McCann will continue to successfully develop our business within the North American market and I wish them both well in their new positions,” said Louis Eperjesi, CEO of Tyman, in the release.
