Dynatronics Announces Planned Resignation of CEO and New Appointed President and CEO
Consistency of Executive Leadership Expected to Provide Smooth Transition
Dynatronics Corporation (NASDAQ: DYNT), a leading manufacturer of athletic training, physical therapy, and rehabilitation products, today announced that Chief Executive Officer and Director John Krier has informed the Board of his intention to resign from the company by the end of September 2023 to pursue other professional interests. Brian Baker, the company’s current Chief Operating Officer, and former President and Chief Executive Officer, has accepted the role of President of Dynatronics effective immediately and will assume the titles of President, Chief Executive Officer, and Director upon Mr. Krier’s official departure.
Commenting on the leadership changes, John Krier, Chief Executive Officer of Dynatronics, said, “Elevating Brian Baker to the role of President and subsequently Chief Executive Officer provides seamless executive leadership to our customers, employees, and shareholders. It has been an intense three plus years leading Dynatronics through the impact of COVID-19 and clarifying our role in the markets we serve. It is a good inflection point for the company, as well as for me.”
Resuming the role of President, Mr. Baker will be responsible for the leadership decisions that accompany day-to-day management of the organization. Mr. Krier will continue to supervise Dynatronics’ finance team and investor relations while the Company recruits a new Chief Financial Officer.
“I am honored to return as President and eventually Chief Executive Officer of Dynatronics and excited to work with our talented teams and long-standing customers in the Company’s next chapter,” said Mr. Baker. “I am very familiar with all aspects of our organization based on all of my experience at Dynatronics, am 100% healthy, and engaged to lead the Company moving forward.”
Erin Enright, Dynatronics Chairman of the Board added, “We have been extremely fortunate to have two executives of John and Brian’s character, experience, and professional working relationship to guide our company. Their working relationship will serve our customers, employees, and shareholders well as we make this transition. Along with our whole Board, I congratulate Brian on his expanded responsibilities and thank John for all of his significant contributions as he moves on to pursue the next chapter of his professional career,” said Ms. Enright.
Brian Baker rejoined Dynatronics full-time as Chief Operating Officer in January 2022. Mr. Baker held the CEO position until July 2020 when he resigned due to health issues. Following his resignation as CEO, Mr. Baker continued as a Dynatronics Board of Directors member and a consultant to the Company until his appointment as Chief Operating Officer.
