St. Petersburg-based Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL), a multinational manufacturing company that makes parts for some of the world’s leading brands, has chosen Kenny Wilson to succeed Mark Mondello as CEO.

Wilson, according to a news release, has been with the company since 2000, when he joined Jabil as a business unit coordinator in Livingston, Scotland. Most recently, he led the firm’s Green Point division in Asia.

“There is no greater honor than having the opportunity to continue to shape the Jabil story as its new CEO, to be a protector of this unique culture and to provide future generations the privilege of experiencing what we all have in our careers at this company,” Wilson states in the release. “As we continue our growth, we will continue to deliver exceptional value to our customers, shareholders, employees and communities.”

Mondello, the release states, will remain with Jabil as executive chair of the board.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with our selection of Kenny Wilson as Jabil’s next CEO,” Mondello states in the release. “His work ethic, approach, experience and commitment to servant leadership position him perfectly to lead our team and underpin the wonderful working relationship we have. Kenny has earned this promotion and I look forward to working side-by-side with him, from my position as executive chairman, as he embraces his new role.”

Jabil reported $33.48 billion in gross revenue in 2022, up from $29.29 billion in 2021 — an increase of 14.3%.
