Cliff Baggot Moves to Chairman While Son Greg Takes Over as President

Cres Cor announced that Greg Baggott has been named president of the family-owned equipment manufacturer, succeeding his father, Cliff Baggott, who will move to the chairman of the board role.

“I have witnessed amazing perseverance from the Cres Cor team over the past two years. At the start of the pandemic, I entrusted Greg with more autonomy to guide Cres Cor,” Cliff Baggott said. “Greg rose to the challenge, managed the company superbly, and maintained focus on supply chain and employee safety."

Greg Baggott spent five years working outside the industry before returning to Cres Cor in 2006. Since then, he has served as a shop supervisor, quality assurance manager, regional sales manager, and, most recently, vice president of operations. While working full-time, Greg earned his MBA from John Carroll University in 2010 and he has served for the past four years on the board of NAFEM and chairs the Young Executives Forum.

“I am honored to succeed my father as the third generation to lead Cres Cor,” Greg said. “If you know Cliff, the ‘R-word’ is not in his vocabulary. Cliff will remain active at the company, and I am pleased to say he will continue to mentor me and our team.”
