Cincinnati, Ohio – The ChemQuest Group has named Bradley Boelkins as its vice-president. Among his duties, Boelkins will play a role in ChemQuest’s merger and acquisitions activities.

Boelkins joins ChemQuest after a 33-year career with Tesa Tape Inc. Starting at Tesa in 1988 as a product manager for single-sided adhesive tapes, Boelkins has since held executive management positions and proven his expertise in sales, marketing, business development, executive management, and mergers and acquisitions.

Before retiring from Tesa Tape at the end of 2021, Boelkins was a management team member and Director of Operations/M&A, a promotion he received in 2017. 

ChemQuest CEO Dan Murad remarks, “I very much look forward to working closely with Brad on our future buy and sell-side M&A projects. His experience with M&A will help bolster ChemQuest’s current M&A offerings, and his extensive adhesive experience will also benefit our clients interested in that area of market specialization.”

On his new position at The ChemQuest Group, Boelkins said,” I am tremendously excited to join The ChemQuest Group and have already been extremely impressed by the knowledge and experience of my colleagues. I very much look forward to working with the team to help develop the business further and address the needs of our clients.”
