Alex B. Lincoln was named president of Fenstermaker, succeeding Dr. Kam Movassaghi, who retired Jan. 1 after 10 years with the Lafayette-based consulting engineering firm.
In announcing the change, Fenstermaker Chairman and CEO Bill Fentersmaker noted that Movassaghi leaves behind a legacy of growth and progress forever etched in the history of the company.
“Kam was an integral part of the Fenstermaker team and was responsible for many of our advancements during his tenure as president,” the chief exec said. “His contributions gave us the structure required for growth and defined our path toward excellence in all areas of our operations. Kam’s leadership has been a valued component of our success, and we wish him the very best in the retirement he richly deserves.”
Lincoln, who had been working as a consultant for Fenstermaker since April 2014, has experience in several industries and now understands Fenstermaker’s business — all of which make him “the ideal person to lead our company as it embarks on the next 65 years,” said Fenstermaker, a reference to the company’s 65th anniversary this year.
Lincoln has a bachelor of arts degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. He spent three years in Germany on assignment with Huels, a chemical and plastics corporation, where he was a member of the company’s executive management program and the firm’s corporate development and strategy group.
Lincoln has worked in various industries, including chemicals and plastics, transportation, petroleum, construction and pipeline. He has been involved with multiple disciplines at several companies within these industries, including sales and marketing, production and planning, corporate and business development, strategic innovation, and financial analysis and planning.
