‘Active Board Member – Pivotal Role’

With the untimely death of my business partner, I turned to Jim McHugh to serve as an active board member who could help me make immediate and substantial strategic decisions in the redirection of my NH-based contract manufacturing firm. Beckwood had customer awards from Fortune 1000 customers to prove it was a world-class performer, but it needed an internal management update to achieve its full potential. In a matter of months, Jim helped me advance Beckwood’s unmet operating and personnel needs to world-class standards. Having thus strengthened Beckwood’s governance and capabilities, we were able to complete a sale to Sparton Corp., a NYSE-traded electronics contract manufacturer, to the great satisfaction of all shareholders. Jim McHugh played a pivotal role in that success.  — Peter Alcock, Former Owner, Chairman, CEO of Beckwood Services, Inc.
