Brett Jaffe, CEO of C&M Conveyor and Ohio Blow Pipe, has announced several top management changes.
After 32 years of leadership at Ohio Blow Pipe, Ed Fakeris has transferred from day-to-day involvement to an advisory position with the company.
“This will allow Ed to realize his well-deserved personal objectives, while still contributing to Ohio Blow Pipe,” Jaffe said. “We will certainly miss Ed’s daily passion and drive, but we’ll still have access to his guidance and experience, albeit on a less frequent basis.”

Before joining C&M Conveyor, Grube was a corporate project manager for six years with Packaging Corporation of America, Lake Forest, IL, and production manager and senior project engineer for 13 years with Smurfit-Stone Container, Chicago, IL. Grube holds two degrees from the University of Kansas—a B.S. in mechanical engineering and an M.B.A.
