Brandon Crawley, principal at Platinum Equity who has been serving as Elevate’s interim global CEO, says: “We see tremendous opportunity to leverage the company’s expanded global footprint and advance as leaders in innovation and sustainability. Per brings the right passion and drive to Elevate with more than 30 years of demonstrating strategic leadership to quickly and successfully drive business growth.”
