Oakland-based Amerlux on Wednesday said its CEO and president, Chuck Campagna, has been appointed as the head of the Building Solutions Americas Business Unit at parent company Delta Electronics, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions.

Campagna, who holds a master’s degree from Columbia Graduate School’s Executive Education Program, has won numerous honors and achieved record growth at Amerlux since becoming the company’s top executive in 1999. He will maintain his current position at Amerlux while leading Delta’s BSABU.

“With his vision, strong interpersonal skills and dedication, we are confident that BSABU will serve as a strategic driver for expanding our business throughout the Americas,” Bill Y.C. Lo, general manager of Delta’s Building Automation Business Group, said. “This includes both solutions and products. Additionally, this move aims to bolster the competences, capabilities and capacities of BABG through a collaborative endeavor involving Delta Controls, March Networks, LOYTEC Americas and Vivotek.”

Delta Electronics also announced that it appointed Hong Wu as the head of the Surveillance Solutions Business Unit. Wu joined Delta in May, bringing with him over 20 years of experience in the information technology consulting industry. He has a distinguished career, including 16 years at IBM Taiwan. Prior to joining Delta, he served as the general manager of IBM Consulting, leading a team of 750 consultants and achieving remarkable growth of over 60% within a span of four years. Wu holds an MBA from Pennsylvania State University and a bachelor’s degree in management information systems from National Central University.

Both appointments are effective from Oct. 1.
