Indium Corporation Announces New Corporate Leadership


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has promoted Greg Evans to CEO, and Ross Berntson to president and COO. Former CEO and company owner William Macartney III will continue serving as the chairman of the board.

Evans has been with Indium Corporation for 36 years. He began as a Technical Support Engineer and quickly rose to Product Line Manager, helping expand the company’s product lines into the SMT assembly field. As Division Director for Indium Corporations electronics assembly materials, he guided the steady growth of the solder paste product line and instituted a formal corporate R&D function. Evans eventually became the VP of Manufacturing and Sales, overseeing the expansion of the company’s manufacturing footprint and sales structure in the UK, Singapore, China, South Korea, and Malaysia, and addressing the growing global demand for Indium Corporation products. Evans was named President and COO in 1997, leading the company’s growth from dozens of people to over 800 and from one factory in Utica, N.Y. to 12 facilities, worldwide. Under his leadership, Indium Corporation has earned numerous awards, honors, and recognition due to the strengthening of corporate culture and performance.

Evans earned his AAS in Engineering Science from Mohawk Valley Community College, his BS in Chemical Engineering from Clarkson University, and his MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

“Greg’s leadership has propelled Indium Corporation to the position of more than just an electronics assembly materials manufacturer and supplier of choice, but also an employer of choice,” Macartney III said. “I very much look forward to continuing our close work together as we spend many more years dedicated to the success of Indium Corporation and strengthening the company. Together, we are equally dedicated to the success of each member of the Indium Corporation family, and will work to secure our futures, achieve everyone’s potential, and uphold our company culture – The Indium Way.”

As CEO, Evans will focus, primarily, on the company’s long-term mission and strategies. His work will ensure the ongoing growth and vibrancy of Indium Corporation.

He quickly rose to the roles of product manager, marketing leader, sales leader, tech support leader, and, most recently, as Executive Vice President. Berntson is an active member of numerous industry organizations, including IPC, iNEMI, IMAPS, and SMTA. He has published several technical papers and articles, and presented at technical conferences globally. Berntson has a master’s degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Cornell University, where he earned the Henny Wittink Memorial Marketing Prize and the George Caldwell Award.

“Over the past 20 years, Ross has been intelligent and strategic in his results-driven approach to leadership at Indium Corporation,” Evans said. “I look forward to continuing to work alongside Ross as we further secure Indium Corporation’s position as the global leader in quality electronics assembly materials and technical support.”
