Valcom, a division of Potter Electric Signal Company, announced that Tim Anderson will serve as its next president. Anderson succeeds Jack Mason, who founded Valcom around 40 years ago and will continue on as the executive advisor.

Anderson has more than 25 years of strategic and general management experience in a wide array of industries including enterprise communications, medical devices, diagnostics and life-safety communications. Anderson held executive level positions at Johnson and Johnson, Quest Diagnostics, Beckman Coulter, and most recently at Rauland.

“I am very excited to join the Valcom team,” said Anderson said. “Valcom has a long history of product excellence in various markets, and I look forward to applying my industry experience and leadership skills to guide the company into its next chapter.”

Gerry Connolly, CEO of Potter Electric Signal, noted Mason’s contributions to the company, as well as confidence for Anderson’s leadership. 

“As founder, Jack built Valcom from the ground up and led the company to become a trusted and reliable industry leader in voice paging, intercom and mass notification solutions in multiple markets,” Connolly said. “We are grateful for his leadership and his willingness be an integral part of Valcom’s future in his new role. We look forward to Tim’s strategic leadership, and we are confident that under his vision, Valcom will continue to experience new growth.”
