Regulator names new vice president of strategic planning

Publish date:

Regulator Marine promoted Rex Anderson to executive vice president of strategic planning and development. Anderson, who previously served as human resources director, has been with the builder since 2008.

“I am grateful for the ways Rex has helped develop leaders and will continue to identify, train and promote them within our team,” said Regulator president and co-founder Joan Maxwell in a statement. “We truly value his vast knowledge and wisdom.”

Anderson came out of retirement from the automotive industry to work at Regulator and played an important role in helping it come through the recession, the company said.

Anderson also helped build the staff from less than 150 people to more than 220, filling positions from the factory floor to vice president of finance and director of engineering.

“Regulator is a wonderful place to work,” Anderson said. “Our leaders do their work with integrity and always treat people the way they should be treated. It’s an honor to be part of this team.”
