ITL is pleased to announce the promotion of veteran Production Manager Thongphoun Kounvalong to the newly created position of Assistant Plant Manager. In this new role, he will oversee day-to-day activity and operations of existing teams engaged in all areas related to manufacturing production, repair/technical support, warehousing/logistics, and shipping/receiving on behalf of the company.
“ITL has relied on Phoun’s keen sense of fairness and his even-handed approach to management of a rapidly growing segment of the company’s business over the last 17 years. Expanding his responsibilities as Assistant Plant Manager reflects our Executive Team’s confidence in his capacity to support additional areas of growth within the company, as well as gratitude for his loyalty and many years of dedicated service,” said Kenny Mathis, Plant Manager.
Kounvalong joined the company as an electronic technician in 2003. A positive-minded team player with a keen technical sensibility, an unwavering commitment to excellence, and an aptitude for organizational and project management, he naturally evolved into the role of Production Manager, with direct responsibility for delivering a continuously expanding range of state-of-the-art aviation obstruction lighting products, as well as managing the repair and service business for the company.
