Thordon Bearings Inc., appoints Anna Galoni as CEO

Thordon Bearings Inc., a Thomson-Gordon Group Company has announced that it has appointed Anna Galoni as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Prior to her appointment in April, Galoni held a number of senior roles in various departments including Human Resources Director, New Product Development Director and, subsequently, Chair, Thordon Bearings – a position she continues to hold. Her appointment follows the retirement of Terry McGowan, who stepped down after almost fourteen years in the CEO role.

Galoni said: “I am very excited to be leading Thordon Bearings at this new juncture in its long and illustrious history. I look forward to working with the Senior Management Team to build on the work of my predecessor and to ensure the company remains at the very forefront of environmentally focused clean power generation and industrial pump seal and bearing solutions.

George (Sandy) A. Thomson, Thomson-Gordon Group Innovator and Thordon Bearings’ Founder said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of my stepdaughter Anna as our new CEO. After three generations of family ownership, the Thomson-Gordon Group, and Thordon Bearings is now looking to a fourth-generation family member to safely navigate the company through the challenges of the future.

“Anna has impressed throughout her years with the company and is now beginning to implement a plan that will see us expand and diversify the portfolio into other markets. Our philosophy, then and now, is to innovate and make systems and technologies that last a lifetime. This will continue to be at the heart of everything we do.”
