Vergent Products formerly TDP Inc, names Jay Dokter president/CEO of the company. Dokter stepped into the position Jan. 1 and will oversee all executive and operational business functions for the 23-year-old company. The move comes as founders Terry and Diana Precht plan for retirement. At a minimum, Terry Precht plans to remain involved in the business for another two to three years.
 “I’m excited to take on the role of CEO and continue the reputation of an amazing company with an eye for growth and job creation,” Dokter said. “Vergent Products has the best client support, design capabilities, infrastructure, systems, and quality control I have ever seen; but what makes it all work are the high-performance teams that make it all happen. It’s about the employees and it’s always about the employees. Many of the Vergent team members have been with the company for over ten years that’s impressive.”
