Spencer named Bird-X president
MechSE alumnus Jeff Spencer (BSME '91) has been named president of Bird-X, an Elmhurst-based bird and wildlife control company.
Spencer brings 30 years of experience in commercial and residential lighting, holding several key leadership roles in engineering, sales, marketing and upper management. He worked the past five years for Acuity Brands, most recently as vice president and general manager of smart and connected devices.
"As I start to meet and interact with customers, it's clear that the employees take great pride in the company and customers respond to that," Spencer said. "While I knew the brands were respected in their perspective industries, I'm learning that they are well-positioned for success with reputations for great quality, service and key differentiators that we can build on for years to come. I am very excited about the opportunity to lead a company like Bird-X, and carry on the tradition, leadership, integrity and ethics that have motivated several employees to stay for decades."
