CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 17, 2021 – Solve Industrial Motion Group (“Solve”) today announced that its board of directors has named Lisa Mitchell as its new chief executive officer.

After managing Solve’s finances and operations, Lisa will now lead the recently rebranded industrial bearings and power transmission components company in its next chapter of growth and innovation.

Previously, Lisa worked at Tenneco, an automotive components OEM and an aftermarket ride control and emission products manufacturer, and at Vallen, a solutions indirect materials and safety services distributor, for a combined total of nearly 30 years. She served in several management and executive roles at both companies.

“I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to continued collaboration with our customers and sales team to continue growing equity in the Solve brand and our trusted products,” said Lisa Mitchell, CEO of Solve. “We are already seeing the value of creating a single, cohesive brand in the marketplace as we continue finding solutions for our customers and focusing on the customer experience.”
