Motion Industries promoted Jim May to director of corporate development.

May joined Motion in August 2020 as director of strategic planning and development to advance its corporate strategic planning, provide economic, industry and competitor analyses, and support deal-side acquisition execution and integration processes, the company says.

In his new role, May will continue his involvement in Motion’s strategic planning but will take on direct responsibility for advancing the company’s acquisition strategy and processes. May will continue to report directly to Greg Cook, Motion executive vice president and CFO.

“Since joining Motion last August, Jim has quickly displayed his financial, strategic, acquisition and relational acumen,” Cook says. “In his new, expanded role, Jim will now have front-line responsibility for building relationships with potential acquisition targets, and will be the outward-facing point person for our acquisition pipeline. His wide-ranging strategy, corporate development and financial experience within the industrial and manufacturing sectors, as well as his highly relational approach, uniquely position him to lead Motion’s corporate development efforts and to help achieve our company vision.”

Before joining Motion last year, May accrued 20 years of corporate development experience, including positions with Diebold Nixdorf and most recently Chart Industries, where he led global strategic planning and merger and acquisition functions.
