After a transition period over the past three months, Kate Nelson is now leading Io DuPont’s Power Cordz as company founder Tony DuPont focuses on research and development.
Nelson said she sees lowered manufacturing costs on the horizon, and growing interest from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end-users now.
“2010 will be a big year for building on the successes of 2009,” said Nelson. “As a small company, the growth we’ve seen has been really exciting – especially considering the economy’s slowdown since 2008.”
Plans under Nelson’s leadership include a strengthened campaign to build awareness of some of the lesser known advantages of synthetic control cables.
Nelson started with Power Cordz in 2008 as the finance and supply chain manager before managing worldwide sales.
Before working with IO DuPont and Power Cordz, she worked as program manager for the Nampa School District, where she was in charge of profit and loss, staffing, purchasing and vendor relations for all district programs.
She earned her master’s degree from the University of Idaho in 2004.
