Briggs Industries recently named Charles “Chuck” Dockery as president and chief executive officer, succeeding Stephen Glaser, who leaves to pursue other interests.

“During the past three years, Steve led our company through a very challenging period for the housing industry and the U.S. economy,” said Jose Ramon Valente, chairman of the board. “We are grateful that he not only developed policies and strategies ensuring Briggs could prosper in this difficult economic climate, but also that he implemented an effective succession plan. We have confidence Chuck will build on the great things Steve has achieved.”

Rising to senior executive status with Briggs over two decades, Dockery has worked in various leadership roles including engineering/quality assurance manager, plant superintendent and, most recently, plant manager of the Knoxville, Tenn., steel manufacturing plant. The facility is where he led development of Briggs’ latest bathing innovation, Ultracast, designed to provide the features and benefits of cast iron without the weight and cost. This revolutionary and patent-pending technology was engineered under Dockery.
