New Elliott CEO and COO

Published on: 

Elliott Group has appointed Takanobu Miyaki Chief Executive Officer (CEO), succeeding outgoing CEO, Michael Lordi, who has retired after 35 years. Miyaki transferred from parent company Ebara to Elliott in 2014 to serve as Director, Corporate Development. In this role, he was instrumental in the acquisition of Elliott’s Cryodynamic Products business. Prior to his appointment as CEO, Mr. Miyaki held positions covering every aspect of Elliott’s business. Most recently, he was the Vice President of Global Manufacturing. Lordi oversaw expansion of Elliott’s global operations in China and India, and continued investment in U.S.-based operations with the construction of a new cryogenic pump testing facility in Jeannette, PA.

“As we look towards the future, the world and our customers are undergoing rapid and drastic changes. As a company, Elliott must be prepared to respond to these changes,” said Miyaki. “My priorities will be to lead with transparency, foster an openness to change and adaptation, and empower Elliott’s employees to develop new processes, products, and services so that we can continue to be an industry leader in the decades to come.


Elliott also announced the appointment of Shane Reph as Chief Operating Officer (COO). He joined Elliott in 2011 as Director of Engineered Solutions, and over the next nine years, directed the activities of three of Elliott’s core Global Service businesses before being appointed Vice President of Global Service in 2020.
