Leadership Team





Jeff D’Amour and Kevin Ciak each led successful 20+ year careers with General Electric, spanning four different GE manufacturing business units, including Industrial Systems, Infrastructure, Oil & Gas, and Power.

In 2019, Jeff’s passion and aptitude for continuous improvement were introduced to Kevin’s business and financial acumen in what would be their final roles with GE Power. They quickly became great friends and realized a shared vision of business ownership. In 2021, this vision became a reality when Jeff and Kevin acquired General Pallet as equal partners.
