Artel has named Paul Domorski to serve as interim president and CEO in the wake of the departure of Ted Hengst, who has left the company to pursue other interests.
The company statement on Monday praised Hengst, who took the reins in November 2012. “[He] quickly developed a strategic roadmap for the company and significantly improved and streamlined operations and processes to position Artel for growth,” the company said in its statement.
“On behalf of Artel’s board of directors, I would like to express our deepest appreciation for Ted’s strong leadership and integrity, his exceptional contributions to the success of the company and his dedication to its customers, employees and partners,” said Steve Kappes, chairman of the board.
Domorski comes to Artel with a range of experience including leading Syncordia, a large European network management and outsourcing company. He also was an executive with Unisys and Avaya. More recently he was the CEO of PAR Hospitality Solutions.
“Growth, value creation and strategic change, have been the foundations of Paul’s career and will be instrumental in supporting Artel’s future growth strategy,” Kappes said in a statement.
Artel is owned by the private equity groups Torch Hill Investment Partners and TPG Growth.
