Innovative Hearth Products Names Tom Krebs as President and CEO

RUSSELLVILLE, AL – Innovative Hearth Products (IHP) announced today that Tom Krebs has been named the company’s president and CEO, effective immediately. In this leadership role, Krebs will leverage his more than 18 years of hearth industry experience to guide IHP’s growth initiatives and pursue opportunities to expand the company’s product offerings as well as improve operational efficiencies that deliver increased value to distributors and dealers.

“Tom is a proven leader with in-depth knowledge of the marketplace and an appreciation for IHP’s culture,” said Mike Clevy, partner, Beckner Clevy Partners and chairman, IHP. “His background and leadership qualities will be essential in guiding IHP into the next phase as we prepare for a bright future.”

Most recently, Krebs served as executive vice president of sales and marketing for IHP. He began his career with the company in 2001, joining Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) as a regional sales manager before quickly rising to national sales manager in 2004. When LHP merged with FMI Products in 2012 to form IHP, Krebs continued in this role until 2015. Earlier in his career, he held numerous sales and marketing positions with Lennox Industries’ commercial and residential HVAC divisions.

“I’m eager to help shape IHP’s continued growth, especially at a time when the company is focused on preserving its rich heritage and establishing itself as one of the industry’s premier brands,” said Krebs. “My goal is to help improve our market position and operating performance while simultaneously driving added value for our customers and our company.”

Krebs’ appointment follows IHP’s recent acquisition by Beckner Clevy Partners and Harbert Management Corporation.
