Hazelwood, Mo-based mobility solution manufacturer NuMotion has taken on Warren (Bud) DeGraff as the firm’s COO. DeGraff most recently served in leadership roles focused on operations and profits and loss at GE. DeGraff’s tenure at GE reportedly lasted 18 years.

In a media release from NuMotion, DeGraff greeted his new role with excitement, and indicated he was looking forward to being part of an organization with a strong mission of helping people in the healthcare industry.

NuMotion CEO Mike Swinford, who joined the company in July after a 22-year career at GE, described DeGraff as a dynamic business leader with more than 20 years of multi-industry global experience and extensive operational expertise. “As a certified Six Sigma Master Black Belt with a track record of leading change through Lean process improvements, Bud brings a unique leadership skill set that will ultimately benefit our customers and our business,” Swinford says.
