“Chris is a collaborative leader, who values teamwork and prioritizes the growth and development of his teams– naturally bringing together people to leverage their unique skills, talents, and knowledge to achieve a common purpose”, says Tami Newcombe.
Bohn brings to the role a breadth of commercial, strategic, and continuous improvement experience and expertise that he gained over 15 years in global roles of increasing responsibility across Fortive’s two largest operating companies, Fluke and Tektronix.
From 2019 to 2021, Bohn served as the Vice President General Manager for Keithley Portfolio Solutions driving double-digit growth, a simplified product and software portfolio, and a customer-focused innovation roadmap that resulted in the most profitable period in its 75+ year history.

“As an engineer, veteran and business leader, I'm drawn not only to technological innovation, but also to the culture and processes that have supported successful companies”, says Bohn. “That culture — and the business processes that enable growth in both revenue and innovation — are what truly set an organization apart.”
