Londonderry, NH — Scott Fawcett has been promoted to president of Bode Equipment Company and its subsidiary, Service Handling Equipment Company (Ashland, MA). Fawcett, who has been with the company for more than 11 years, has served as vice president for the past eight years before taking over as president for his father, Steve Fawcett. Steve will remain with the company and retain the title of CEO. The transition has been more than a two-year process. “We announced the transition two years ago, and it has been a very gradual process,” says Steve Fawcett. “It has been a very smooth transition. Scott has done everything that we have asked of him and is ready to take the reins as president. It has been business as usual since he has taken over.” As CEO, Steve will take the time to work on the business rather than in the business.
