NewAge Appoints New Members to the Board of Directors

Plastic tubing manufacturer, NewAge Industries, recently named two new members to its Board of Directors. The gentlemen join current board members Cecil Ursprung and Pat Sacco, and are now part of the team steering the strategic plans of the employee-owned company.

NewAge CEO Ken Baker invited the new members, Jim Henderson and Andreas Georghiou, to help plan the years ahead for NewAge Industries, its employee owners, and its customers as the company expands.

Over the past several years, NewAge Industries’ product lines have diversified to include AdvantaPure® high-purity biopharm and pharmaceutical products, which are now being used in the battle against COVID-19, and BrewSavor® hose for the beer brewing industry. In August 2019, NewAge became 100% employee owned, the culmination of a plan that had been in the works for over 15 years.

Baker, recognizing that additional experienced leadership was needed to help continue the company’s success, invited Henderson and Georghiou to join NewAge’s Board of Directors earlier this year.

Jim Henderson has been a past Board of Directors member for public and private industrial, technology and communications corporations. Henderson is currently the Senior Transformation Executive for Infinera Corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif. He has directing and operational P&L experience involving procurement, product management and customer solutions. Henderson holds an M.B.A. in Finance and bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering and Physics.

Andreas Georghiou was CEO of a network service and equipment provider and has served as Chief Commercial Officer, Senior Vice President, and Director with other organizations. Georghiou consults with several companies on reorganization and strategic planning and has served on other Boards as well. He bears a Master of Science degree in Operations Research, a bachelor’s degree in Economics and was a Fulbright Scholar.
