C&D Technologies names former Kulicke exec as CEO

Posted: October 06, 2012

C&D Technologies Inc., a Blue Bell-based maker of energy-storage products and backup power systems, has hired Christian Rheault as its new president and chief executive officer.

Rheault had been senior vice president of global business operations for Kulicke & Soffa Industries Inc. until the maker of semiconductor and LED assembly equipment moved its corporate headquarters to Singapore from Fort Washington.

Taken by private by Angelo, Gordon & Co. in January, C&D had been led by interim CEO David L. Treadwell since May, after Minnesota-based MTS Systems Corp. hired away longtime chief Jeffrey A. Graves.
