King Systems' two top execs exit company

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Noblesville-based King Systems Corp. is without its two top executives after both abruptly left the company on Wednesday.

CEO Don Dumoulin and Chief Financial Officer Yun Kim exited King Systems in a “mutual agreement” with Great Britain-based parent company Consort Medical PLC, said its CEO, Jonathan Glenn.

King Systems manufactures anesthesia and respiratory care products. With 475 local employees, it’s the third-largest medical device developer in the Indianapolis area, according to IBJ statistics.

Glenn, who arrived in Noblesville earlier this week to announce the departures, declined to provide specifics on why the two were let go.

“The business is fine,” he said. “There’s nothing sinister behind this.”

Calls to Dumoulin’s home at the Bridgewater Golf Club in Carmel were not returned.

A search is under way for a new chief executive and CFO, said Glenn, noting that a couple of executives from Consort will be overseeing King Systems' operations until permanent replacements are named.

Founded by Flois Burrow in 1977, the company was acquired by Bespak PLC—now called Consort Medical—in December 2005 in a deal valued at up to $95 million.

In April 2007, King Systems bought Emergent Respiratory Products Inc. of Irvine, Calif., for $38 million.

King Systems hired Dumoulin, a former Roche Diagnostics Corp. executive, as its CEO in October 2008. Under his watch, the company twice ran afoul of government regulations.

In October 2009, the Indiana Department of Labor slapped King Systems with a $191,000 fine for repeatedly failing to mitigate employees’ exposure to dangerous gases.

Two months later, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered the company to quit marketing its oropharyngeal airway for uses not yet approved by the agency.

Dumoulin, a vice president at Roche, was let go from that company after shipping $11.7 million worth of diabetes-testing equipment in September 2006 to grifter Dina Wein Reis after she convinced him she was running a not-for-profit.

    I believe it is going forward. I have heard of no settlement. I will check and see if it is scheduled. If I hear more, I will post it. It is to be held in federal court in the Indianapolis jurisdiction

    1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

    2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

    3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

    4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

    5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
