SAN DIEGO, Nov. 3 Robert Mazzacavallo has joined Veridiam as the company's Chief Financial Officer. San Diego-based Veridiam is a contract manufacturer of high-precision, fabricated assemblies and metal components, primarily serving Fortune 500 companies in the medical devices, power generation, aerospace and general industrial markets.
Before joining Veridiam, Mazzacavallo was Chief Financial Officer at C-Tech Industries in Camas, WA. At C-Tech, Bob worked closely with Andrew Gale, now Veridiam's CEO. Mazzacavallo has spent much of his career assisting mid-sized, multi-site manufacturers grow their business, identify efficiencies, streamline processes and optimize resources.
"Andy Gale has a strong achievable vision for the company and I am looking forward to helping to drive that vision and make it a reality," he continues. "My part in this is to help improve efficiencies, drive out costs and help make Veridiam an even greater success than it is today."
"Among our customers and our competitors, Veridiam is recognized for its unique capabilities and solid reputation for quality," he says. "Veridiam is a gem of a company. I am really excited to be a part of it and to help build upon its successes going forward."

The medical device market also holds tremendous growth potential for Veridiam, Mazzacavallo believes. "Our medical device business has continued to thrive and grow, even in a down economy. We expect this area to expand significantly."
