LANSDALE, PA (DECEMBER 26, 2023)—Regina Guarracino, a veteran executive with experience in industries including industrial IOT, office furnishings, and telecommunications, has joined Keystone Technologies as its new Chief Operations Officer, Keystone CEO Ira Greenberg announced.
“I’m thrilled to announce that Regina Guarracino is joining Keystone,” said Greenberg. “Not only does Regina bring outstanding technical skills in a variety of operational areas including logistics, manufacturing, and supply chain, but she also has an impressive track record of building trust with all employees, customers, and suppliers, empowering teams within and across the organization to grow and succeed, as well as effectuating positive change with a focus on customer experience, productivity, and safety.”
