Arctic Cat Inc. has named a former Ingersoll Rand executive as its new vice president of operations.
Paul Fisher, 53, succeeds Ron Ray, who is retiring from Arctic Cat on May 15 after 18 years with the company.
Fisher brings more than 25 years of leadership experience with international businesses, driving lean manufacturing, quality and supply chain improvements.
“Paul’s expertise complements our organization’s strategic direction and continuous improvement goals,” Christopher Twomey, Arctic Cat’s CEO, said in a press release. “We also want to thank Ron, who is retiring from this position after 18 years. Ron’s contributions are significant. He has been a strong leader, who has worked tirelessly to improve all aspects of Arctic Cat’s operations.”
Fisher joins Arctic Cat from Ingersoll Rand, where he served as business leader of the Trane Residential Division’s operations in Tyler, Texas, Ingersoll Rand’s largest plant. There, he oversaw manufacturing operations of outdoor condensers, leading improvements in the cost of goods sold, safety and quality.
Before joining Ingersoll Rand, Fisher was employed by Maytag Corp. for approximately 21 years, most recently as vice president of Southwest operations for Maytag’s Hoover Vacuum Division.
