Always strive to be better
Todd joined Salt Creek Capital as an Executive Partner in 2016 and was key in the purchase of Griplock Systems in August of that same year. This is Todd Hemingway’s third role as a CEO.
Todd brings over 25 years of manufacturing, product development, and sales experience to the firm. Most recently, Todd served as the Americas Division CEO and Corporate VP of Engineering for a global manufacturing and assembly company. Todd designed and received multiple patent awards, while maintaining full P&L control of his division. He has managed the development, testing, and sales of products for OEM, tier, and distribution customers for business units with up to $400M in sales.
His experience with each company has been an excellent opportunity with all growing faster than planned. Every business grew organically, with new products and patent protection that he or his employees invented.
Since taking the helm at Griplock Systems, Todd has traveled abroad to every manufacturing facility the company uses in order to ensure the utmost quality standards are being met. He has hired new people to increase efficiencies and maintain the highest level of customer service. And he expanded the operational capacity of the company and decreased overseas lead-times by moving the warehouse and production to a facility in South Carolina nearly double the size of its previous California building.
When he started, Todd’s goal was to build on the company’s strong foundation, cultivate new business relationships, and expand Griplock’s reach. Under Todd’s leadership, Griplock Systems has seen increased market share and record revenue growth year after year.
As much as Todd pours into Griplock Systems, it pales in comparison to the love and devotion he has for his family. Todd is happily married with 2 children, both of whom are away at college pursuing their degrees. He loves college football, hunting, fishing, soccer, and good slow-smoked barbecue.
