Posted by Michelle Howard

Deep-cycle batteries manufacturer Trojan Battery Co., LLC announced the appointment of Neil Thomas as president and chief executive officer (CEO) for Trojan Battery, succeeding Jeff Elder, who has announced his retirement.

Thomas joins Trojan following a career with Wayne Fueling Systems where he most recently served as CEO, as well as in other executive management positions. He has also held a series of marketing, planning and sales management roles in the petroleum and industrial equipment industries with companies including Chevron Corp. and Dresser Inc. Earlier in his career, he was a strategic management consultant with Arthur D. Little in its Global Energy practice. Thomas earned a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Wales and an MBA from Warwick Business School, both based in the United Kingdom.

Elder, who has been president and CEO since 2013, joined Trojan in 2005 as chief financial officer and added the title of chief operating officer in 2008. He became president in 2010 and took on the role of CEO following Trojan's equity partnership with Charlesbank Capital Partners in 2013.

Elder will stay on as a consultant to the company and will continue to be an investor in Trojan Battery.
