Danville, Illinois-based LED sign maker Watchfire Signs has promoted two employees among its top leadership team.
Kim Weninger has been named chief operating officer. She joined Watchfire as vice president of operations in 2015. The company says that over her career, she has held senior level managerial positions in industries including chemicals, manufacturing, construction, industrial consulting, semiconductors and oil and gas. “She is known for her inclusive leadership style, data driven decisions, and ethical core values,” the company says.
Kyle Dines has been promoted to vice president of sports and indoor, elevated from being sales director of Watchfire’s outdoor advertising division. In his new role, Dines will be responsible for managing all aspects of the sports and indoor markets for the company. He is a 12-year veteran of Watchfire who has held various roles in engineering, project management and sales. Most recently he led the digital billboard sales team, and helped elevate Watchfire to a market leader in this space by transforming the division to be more data driven.
Both Weninger and Dines will report directly to Steve Harriott, the company’s president and CEO.
