Volume 26/Number 17; January 7/14, 2013

DALTON—Paul Murfin, president of IVC US, has been promoted to co-CEO effective immediately. He will share responsibilities with Xavier Steyaert, who has been CEO of IVC US for almost eight years.

Jan Vergote, IVC’s group CEO, said Murfin will mainly focus on further growing the resilient manufacturer’s market presence in North America, while Steyaert will oversee the operational, financial and industrial development of its North American activities.

Both CEOs have acquired shares of IVC US, the majority being held by its parent company, the IVC Group from Belgium. The share plan signals a long-term commitment to IVC from both Steyaert and Murfin.

“As IVC increases its North American footprint, we have seen the benefit of adding local expertise to the company,” Vergote said. “In the last 16 months, we have seen the strong and complimentary partnership of Xavier and Paul. The move to have both act as co-CEOs takes advantage of their mutual skills with the continued aim of doubling our position as soon as possible.”
