He most recently served as senior VP global operations for Danaher Corp., where he led manufacturing, procurement, service and supply chain for the company’s platform serving the test and measurement markets.

Pro-Lab launches Allergen Test Kit to identify allergens in the home
Pro-Lab has extended its line of self-care test kits to include the new Allergen Test Kit.
"Allergies are becoming more prevalent, with millions of Americans suffering year-round because of allergens trapped within their homes," said Jamie McDonnell, Pro-Lab CEO. "We created the Allergen Test Kit to give Americans the resource they need to identify the source of their ailments."
The Pro-Lab Allergen Test Kit offers a way to detect allergen particles — users secure an included attachment to a vacuum nozzle and run in suspect locations. Once the sample cassette is filled, the cassette is placed in a pre-addressed mailer to be analyzed.
"The results empower families with the knowledge needed to protect themselves," McDonnell said. "Pinpointing the location of allergens allows them to be eradicated instead of continuing with endless symptom treatment."
Kits will be available Aug. 1, the company noted, with distribution across several national retailers, including Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart, Menards, Ace, True Value and Amazon. Suggested retail price for the Allergen Test Kits is $9.95.
