Dwight Davis, chairman and CEO of the Greenheck Corp., announced the appointment of James J. McIntyre as CEO of the Greenheck Group and a member of the company’s board of directors. McIntyre, age 53, will assume his role April 11, 2011, and will be based at the company’s headquarters in Schofield, Wisc. He succeeds Davis, who is stepping back from active management but will continue to provide strategic oversight and continue as chairman of the board of directors. Under Davis’s leadership over the past decade, the company nearly tripled in size and has expanded operations worldwide.

McIntyre comes to his position at Greenheck after a 30-year career in the commercial insurance industry. For the past six years, he has been president and COO of Capitol Transamerica Corp. Prior to his association with Capitol, McIntyre had a 21-year career with Wausau Insurance Companies. He served as president of the company from 2000 to 2002 and previously held a number of senior-level management positions.

A native of southern California, McIntyre earned a bachelor’s degree in business from San Diego State University and completed the advanced executive program at Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania. McIntyre, his wife Hilary, and family reside in Wausau, Wisc.

Commenting on McIntyre’s appointment, Davis said, “As co-owners of the business, the Robert C. Greenheck family and I are extremely pleased that Jim is joining our leadership team. His extensive leadership experience, blended with that of our talented, seasoned executive team, will create a powerful leadership dynamic going forward. We envision the Greenheck Group of companies moving on to new levels of success in the years ahead as a privately held company.”
