Lake Cable’s Continuing Growth Cycle Brings Exciting Changes


Lake Cable’s Continuing Growth Cycle Brings Exciting Changes

Over the last several years, Lake Cable has enjoyed a cycle of business growth that’s included the development of innovative new products and expansion of client relationships.

As part of that growth cycle, we continue to evolve using our best people, processes and technology. One such key member is Emile Tohme.

Since early 2002, Emile has been a part of our family here at Lake Cable, finding ways to make our operations “Better. Smarter. Faster.” From the time he was a Design Engineer, Emile has shown that he has an extraordinary ability to implement smarter methods of lean manufacturing, process engineering and continuous improvement. When it comes to product development, he’s as intimately involved as anyone on our team in bringing ideas to life while at the same time showing he welcomes fresh insights from others.

With this track record of success as well as his profound understanding of our company culture, values and goals, we’re excited to announce Emile Tohme has been named President of Lake Cable.

In his most recent role as Chief Operating Officer, Emile managed Lake Cable’s day-to-day responsibilities. He’s implemented a variety of exciting steps to improve how we operate today and for the future. Previous to this, he managed all three Lake Cable facilities as our Vice President of Operations.

Additionally, as we chart the course for continued success across plants in Bensenville, Valparaiso and Elkhart, it’s good to have the best senior team in the wire and cable business in place to help us do just that: Everett McCarty, VP of our Industrial / Utility Group; Somie Mossell, VP of our Electronic Cable Group; Bill Ballinger, Director of Plant Operations for our Bare Wire Group and of course Bill Runzel, Lake Cable’s CEO.

We’re big believers in promotion from within at Lake Cable and we couldn’t be happier to elevate Emile to this well-deserved leadership role.
