Jack Guidry, former president and CEO of W&O, has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Pon and CEO of PVI, one of Pon’s American holding companies, which owns W&O, DMC-Carter Chambers and AT Controls.  He will be relocating to Houston to lead and continue to grow the PVI group, leveraging existing Pon resources in the area to help expand PVI’s overall position in North America and internationally.
