Glebar Appoints New CEO, Robert Baker

Glebar, a manufacturer and provider of automated centerless and other turnkey precision grinding systems, announced the appointment of Robert Baker as the company's new CEO. Former CEO Adam Cook is transitioning to Chairman of the Board, where he will support strategic planning and advisory, acquisition assessment and execution.

Mr. Baker has spent the last 12 years in numerous positions of increasing leadership responsibility in sales, manufacturing and supply chain and commercial operations, most recently as Vice President of Global Operations for Stryker's Joint Replacement Division. 

["Mr. Baker's] medical device industry relationships and deep manufacturing and operations experience will be welcomed on Glebar's journey of continued growth and commitment to delivering innovative solutions to its partners – our trusted customers," said Mr. Cook. "In the 6 years since this management team took control, the company moved to a larger facility, doubled in headcount and launched many new solution-driven products, all while achieving double-digit compounded annual revenue growth with dramatic profit expansion. I'm humbled to have led this organization for the past six years and look forward to working with Robert. He is the right person to lead Glebar forward, to build upon Glebar's success and lead us to new heights."

Prior to Stryker, Baker served as an officer in the United States Army where he was deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Other organizational changes at Glebar include President, John Bannayan, transitioning to Chief Technology Officer. 

Glebar is an engineering, design and manufacturing company, producing precision grinding machines for a variety of end markets and applications.
