MOUNT PROSPECT, IL -- Suzo-Happ Group reported that Jim Brendel has been promoted to president and chief executive of the parts supplier. Brendel, who was most recently president of Suzo-Happ's North American division, succeeds Jim Norton, who is chairman of the company.

"Jim's distinguished career, strong North American performance and commitment to customer satisfaction will serve as a foundation for taking our global company to higher levels in the future," Norton said.

Suzo-Happ serves customers in some 80 countries from 15 locations. In the U.S., it stocks more than 12,000 SKUs for the vending, amusement and gaming industries. The company was formed in 2005 when Happ Controls and Suzo International merged.

Brendel has been with Suzo-Happ Group since 2005 when the company he founded, Advanced Electronic Systems Inc., merged with the group. He has also held management roles in the gaming and amusement industries since 1988. He entered coin-op in 1988 at Coin Controls Inc., where he started as a controller and in due course advanced to general manager.
