ESCORT appointed as new President and CEO, David Thornhill, who will lead an “aggressive” plan to expand ESCORT’s business internationally.
ESCORT is also planning “an aggressive” product introduction of new radar detectors this September for release this holiday season.
Thornhill was previously Executive VP and COO of Igloo Products, where he oversaw the launch of products such as the “Sportsman” cooler for outdoorsmen, and “Creatures” lunch bags for school lunches.
Thornhill has collaborated with ESCORT owner Monomoy Capital Partners, a NY private equity fund investment firm, to create a plan to “continue ESCORT’s domestic market dominance as well as expand ESCORT’s business presence in international markets,” said the company.
“His combined experience across operations and product marketing, along with his international collaborations and demonstrated leadership skills, are the ideal fit to direct the ongoing strategy of aggressively growing ESCORT,” said John Stewart of Monomoy.
