idX Corp., a global solution provider for consumer environment design, manufacturing, rollout, and installation, has promoted Jeff Ouyang to EVP of international operations and Graham Fownes to general manager of the idX Los Angeles Division.
Ouyang was previously managing director of idX Asia. In his new position, he will help drive consistency and seamlessness in servicing idX clients around the globe.
Ouyang will lead operational and business growth activity for the APAC and Europe regions, including Wujiang, Shanghai, and Xiamen, China; Swindon, U.K.; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Tokyo.
“Jeff’s promotion is well-deserved,” says Mark Pritchard, EVP, strategic business development. “His hands-on approach and strategic drive for growth are important attributes as we continue to expand our global operations.”
Ouyang has been based in China since he joined idX in 2012.
Fownes was previously assistant general manager of idX’s Seattle Division. In his new role, Fownes will lead and direct the manufacturing and sales efforts of the Los Angeles Division.
Fownes joined idX’s Seattle Division as a senior project manager in 2013, and was promoted to assistant general manager in 2014.
“Graham easily transitioned into our Los Angeles facility because our divisions are systemically tied, and our west coast facilities collaborate on a regular basis,” says Scott Stewart, VP continuous improvement. “Graham’s promotion is well-earned recognition for all his hard work and contributions to idX.”
“Jeff and Graham have had a positive impact on idX Corporation,” says idX CEO Terry Schultz. “It’s gratifying to be able to promote these two up-and-coming leaders, recognizing their proven ability and respect from coworkers and clients alike.”
