Ultralife COO resigns

William Schmitz has resigned as chief operating officer at Ultralife Corp., effective Monday, to become president of WindTamer Corp., a developer of wind turbine technology in Geneseo, Livingston County.

The Newark, Wayne County, firm said it does not plan to fill the position. Schmitz’s duties have been reassigned to senior executives.

John Kavazanjian, president and CEO, thanked Schmitz for his dedication and contributions to help build Ultralife’s business over the past 10 years.

“During his tenure, Bill orchestrated the implementation of manufacturing and quality control processes and systems, including lean manufacturing principles, which have given the company its solid foundation for growth,” he said in a statement.

The news follows last week’s announcement that John Casper, Ultralife vice president of finance and chief financial officer, resigned to pursue other opportunities.

Ultralife ranked 12th on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of manufacturers with 774 local workers.
