MiQ Partners Introduces New CEO For Leading Company As It Expands To Meet Growing Market Demands
West Chester, OH – One of the leading contract manufacturing firms in the US, MiQ Partners, has hired Olaf Tessarzyk as Chief Executive Officer to help lead the company through a new era of market expansion and growth. Tessarzyk comes to MiQ Partners with years of proven experience in leading manufacturing companies to higher profitability by streamlining operational efficiencies, executing new product launches, leading sales and partnership activities, and customer service and branding initiatives.
Most recently, Tessarzyk spent nearly 13 years leading a startup machine tool manufacturer, ZPS America, to exceeding profitability goals in less than 5 years. Under his leadership, his team outsold competitors within just two years. As CEO of another manufacturing firm, he helped increase revenue by more than $50 million, a 280% increase, in less than three years.
“After an extensive search with a professional recruiting firm, we are very excited to announce that Olaf Tessarzyk has joined MiQ Partners to help lead an already promising company to new levels,” said Ki Mixon, Partner of Resilience Capital which acquired MiQ Partners in 2019. “His knowledge and leadership record in the manufacturing space is second to none.”
Tessaryzk’s goals for MiQ Partners include expanding the company’s position and footprint as the leading manufacturing, build-to-print, and custom automation partner for medical, life sciences, aerospace, and other industries. With locations in Ohio and California, MiQ Partners serves numerous firms while leading the custom manufacturing industry to new standards for efficiencies, innovative problem solving, customer care, and production outcomes.
“My business success is largely due to executing an employee-centric leadership philosophy that enables companies to become customer-centric enterprises, building relationships upon deep expertise across verticals and manufacturing processes, trust and collaborative achievement of defined goals,” says Tessarzyk. “I am honored to apply my distinct approach and skills to growing MiQ Partners.”
MiQ’s staff consists of experts in a wide variety of verticals who provide industry and manufacturing intelligence to assure projects meet production, timing and budget goals. Vertical specialties include medical, life sciences and aerospace.
“Through collaborative partnerships with clients, built on intelligence specific to verticals and manufacturing, MiQ maintains a high level of client satisfaction and repeat business, both of which are important priorities to me,” says Tessarzyk.
Tessarzyk’s leadership approach is rooted in sound business principles as well as a military career for Germany for which he held leadership positions starting at the age of 23. He has a degree in Economics and Business Management from the University of Hamburg, an advanced degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of The Federal Armed Forces, also in Hamburg. He was a member of YPO, Rotary and other civic and professional organizations and boards, and is a volunteer helicopter flight instructor for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department air support unit, training pilots to fight wildfires, and helps with search and rescue for Northwest Indiana.
