Rich Jeschelnig served as President and CEO of Bronx International, Inc., a producer of steel mill finishing equipment for makers of pipes, bars and tubes, until 2010. Having held management positions in most departments of a company during the evolution of his career, including sales, marketing, engineering and executive, he understands the contribution of each functional area and the interaction needed to achieve corporate goals. Additionally, promoting the development of new products or providing guidance of large-scale engineering projects, both having the potential for high risk, required Rich to actively participate in such efforts as a facilitator. In 2010, Rich led the sale of the business to Fives Group, an industrial engineering group based in Paris, France and continued as President & CEO until his retirement in 2016. Rich currently serves on the board of trustees of Hathaway Brown School as chairman of the buildings and grounds committee, is a private investor in residential real estate, is a limited partner in Citymark Capital and a limited partner in Kirtland Capital Partners.
His education includes a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, as well as graduate courses in engineering and management, and numerous professional seminars. Rich is involved with many charitable organizations, including Cleveland Foodbank, Habitat for Humanity, St Jude Children’s Hospital, Make A Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, Cleveland Museum of Art and Museum of Contemporary Art.
