The Hiller Companies is excited to announce the appointment of new CEO and President, Patrick Lynch. This appointment comes on the heels of our outgoing CEO and President, Dan Romanchuk who announced his retirement in April of this year.

In today’s business climate, you have to continuously evolve in order to meet your customer’s demands and expectations. We are truly excited to add Patrick to our leadership team. I have the utmost confidence that Patrick will lead us to even greater levels while guiding Hiller to meet and surpass what our customers expect.”
