Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Evident Corp. appointed William Wesley “Wes” Pringle CEO and Hiroyuki Yoshimoto president and COO as the life science and industrial microscopes manufacturer reworks its leadership group. Olympus, which held Evident as a subsidiary and operated it as its Scientific Solutions business, announced plans to divest Evident to Bain Capital in August 2022 in a deal worth over $3 billion. The deal was finalized in April this year.

Pringle joins Evident from Danaher, where he ran several companies including test and measurement technology developer Fluke Corp. for almost 10 years. More recently, Pringle served as head of portfolio operations at the private equity firm Onex Corp., where he helped over a dozen portfolio companies accelerate performance.

Pringle takes over CEO responsibilities from Eric Anderson, who was named to the position on an interim basis in May, taking over from Yoshitake Saito, who assumed the role of chairman.
