Optimas Solutions, a global manufacturer and distributor of industrial fasteners and supply chain solutions, has announced the promotion of the company’s president of the Americas, Marc Strandquist, to chief executive officer. He succeeds newly-elected Optimas board chair and AIP operating partner TJ Rosengarth.

In his new role, Strandquist will oversee the planning and execution of the company’s strategic plan for its regional business groups and also oversee the company’s corporate functions that support these business units. He will continue to oversee the company’s Americas business unit.

“Marc is the right person to lead Optimas into the future,” said Rosengarth. “He’s deeply committed to the company and has the strategic vision, industry relationships and leadership style to build on the success we’ve earned this year. I am excited to continue working with him and the entire senior leadership team.

This ensures a seamless transition for Optimas and that this phase of market growth and leadership will continue.”

Strandquist joined Optimas as president of the Americas in January of 2020, with more than 30 years of experience in the fastener distribution and manufacturing industry. He is also a past president of the National Fastener Distributors Association (NFDA).

“Optimas is unique in the marketplace and I’m honored to be leading this company,” Strandquist added. We are on a positive path and well positioned to continue building on the strong momentum we’ve gained this year. We have a talented group of people throughout the world who are re-thinking how our customers and suppliers can achieve their supply chain and manufacturing goals.”
