Astec Industries appoints Richard Dorris interim CEO

Astec Industries has appointed Richard Dorris, who has served as executive vice president and chief operating officer, as interim CEO following the departure of president and CEO Benjamin Brock. 

In addition, the company has appointed current member William Gehl as chairman to fill Brock’s former role as a member of the board of directors.

Brock says: “It has been a privilege to work alongside Astec’s dedicated employees over the past 26 years and to lead the Company as CEO for the past five years. After 26 years of service, I am confident that now is the time to pursue new personal and professional interests.”

Gehl says: “Rick has a deep understanding of Astec’s business and operations as well as the construction industry, which make him an excellent choice to lead Astec through this transition period.”
“On behalf of the Board, I thank Ben for his many contributions to the Company over the years and wish him success in the future.”
