Peterson Manufacturing has appointed Jim Rowden as the company’s new vice-president engineering. Rowden, a Peterson associate since 1996, moves up to replace Tim Murphy, a prominent industry figure who is retiring after more than 21 years with the company.
Rowden will direct the product and system design as well as DOT compliance for Peterson’s full line of LED and incandescent ground vehicle lighting products.
“When I first came to Peterson, LEDs were just taking off,” said Rowden. “For the first few years, most of my emphasis was on expanding our LED line to match our long-time incandescent coverage. Today we’re second to none in LED offerings, and our Piranha brand leads the industry.”
Rowden’s predecessor, Murphy, will continue to serve Peterson on a consulting basis through 2007.
