SKYDEX Demonstrates Commitment to Excellence with New Chief Financial Officer

New CFO Jeff Pelech joins C-team at Denver-based technology company

CENTENNIAL, COLO. (July 1, 2021) –  SKYDEX, a global leader in advanced impact mitigation and energy absorption solutions, today announced that the company has hired an experienced finance industry executive Jeff Pelech, as Chief Financial Officer.

“Jeff brings a breadth of experiences in multiple industries, company types and sizes. He is a strategic thinker, analytical and makes data driven decisions,” said Alvaro Vaselli, President & CEO at SKYDEX. “From our very first meeting, I’ve been impressed with Jeff’s skill set and his roll up sleeves and get things done approach. I’m looking forward to working with him as a business partner and an integral part of the management team to help advance our growth agenda.”

With more than 20+ years of experience in accounting and finance across a broad range of industries, Jeff has been selected among a competitive group of qualified candidates to fill the role of CFO at SKYDEX. After leaving his mark at “Raise the Future”, a Denver nonprofit company that provides life changing resources for foster children in the Denver area, Jeff will continue his exceptional career with SKYDEX. In his new role, he’ll be responsible for accelerating progress and managing day-to-day functions in finance and accounting, IT, HR, and legal operations.

“I’m thrilled to join the passionate team at SKYDEX and see incredible business growth opportunities for the company in 2021,” said Pelech. “Whether it’s helmet protection for the U.S. Army or boat decking for the weekend fisherman, I’m honored to be a part of the SKYDEX mission to protect people and things that matter behind-the-scenes and excited to strengthen the company’s financial operations.”

The company continues to invest for accelerated growth. A recent capital investment to support internal manufacturing expansion will go into production early August. And to support a growing pipeline of sales opportunities, the company is expanding its engineering team starting in early July.
