Tooling Tech Group Names CEO

Lee Childers

Tooling Tech Group (TTG) has announced that Lee Childers, former TTG COO, has been named company CEO. Childers will lead TTG's operations that offer highly engineered design, tooling solutions and automation equipment to the company's Tier 1 and OEM customers. He will report directly to the board of directors.

Childers joined TTG as COO in early 2018, bringing 33 years' experience in developing business plans, growth strategies and leading operations for Tier 1 suppliers including United Technologies, Lear Corporation and IAC Group. "Lee brings a history of metric driven operational excellence with a proven record of on-time delivery and customer focus to provide best in class products and services to TTG's broad customer base," said a company spokesperson.

Childers is a graduate of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, with degrees in chemistry and business administration. He is a current member of the Mechanical Engineering Advisory Board for Lawrence Technological University.

Anthony C. Seger, founder and former CEO of TTG, will be moving into a board role to continue advising and supporting the Tooling Tech management team. "Anthony has spent his entire career in the tooling field and is recognized as an industry leader in several areas, including thermoforming and foundry innovation, while also holding multiple U.S. patents," said the spokesperson.

"After nearly four decades leading the day-to day operations of TTG, I have decided to begin the next phase of my life," said Seger. "With a lot of hard work, we have built the largest tooling company in North America, and I am proud of all that we have accomplished. I feel greatly encouraged about the future of TTG and its leadership under Lee. Over the last several years, we have expanded our capabilities to do more than ever. We have gained momentum with a seasoned and talented corporate leadership team in place, and we are positioned to grow to the next level."

"We are happy to have very competent leaders who will assist us in propelling the company forward," added Charles Castine, Managing Partner of GenNx 360, the private equity firm of Tooling Tech Group.
