John Kusek Announces Retirement
Kansas City, MO – DIT-MCO International, a leading designer and manufacturer of electrical wiring test equipment, announces the retirement of CEO, John Kusek, as of June 30, 2021.
Kusek joined DIT-MCO in November of 2007 as Chief Operating Officer, where he served until 2015. When the company was acquired by Capital for Business and Sage Capital, he assumed the roles of President and CEO. In January of 2021, David Shier was named President, and Kusek remained as CEO.
Kusek played an instrumental role in leading DIT-MCO to some of the most productive years in company history. “After almost 14 years with DIT-MCO, it’s somewhat bittersweet letting go, but I’ll certainly give it a try! I’m supremely confident the company will continue to be in great hands moving forward, and that its best days are yet to come. Our success to this point can be attributed to our great employees, customers, suppliers, and ownership, and I sincerely thank everyone who has been a part of it. Together, these people have made it easier for DIT-MCO to maintain its status as an industry leader. Among my fondest memories is the spirit of camaraderie and purpose displayed by our workforce, doing whatever it takes to accomplish our mission,” said Kusek.
“As for the next steps in my personal journey, I foresee longer stays at the lake house, spending more time with family and friends, and resurrecting vacation plans wiped out by the pandemic. I’m somewhat ashamed to admit I still have boxes to unpack at the house from a move over a year ago, so that’s definitely on the list as well.”
President, David Shier, said, “John has presided over a period of strong growth and profitability at DIT-MCO, while valuing every employee’s needs and contributions. We appreciate the company culture that he has established as CEO. As John begins his retirement, we all wish him a long and healthy life enjoying family, friends, and well deserved relaxation.”
