MT. CLEMENS, Mich. – JB Cutting (JBC) recently announced a strategic reorganization of its executive team to further accelerate its growth plan. Debbie Behring moves from president to CEO and Jason Greenwood (former Vice President of Operations) is now the company president.  

Additional personnel moves include BJ Filthaut (Behring's brother) moving to executive vice president and key hires in finance and manufacturing.

JB Cutting's new executive team:

Debbie Behring (Chief Executive Officer) – As a second-generation business owner, Behring has spent a lifetime preparing herself for her role as CEO of JBC. Her hard work and dedication have taken JBC to new levels, and as her brother, BJ states: “There is no one I trust more to head up our company than Debbie”.
Jason Greenwood (President) – Greenwood has spent the past 3 years with JBC as its VP of Operations and has 25 years of experience in aerospace and industrial manufacturing. His passion for continuous improvement, as well as his servant leadership mentality, are key in his new role as president.
BJ Filthaut (Executive Vice-President) – Like his sister Debbie, Filthaut grew up immersed in JBC and has sawdust in his veins. In his role as Executive VP, he will utilize his 30 + years of 3DL and Millwork experience to help propel JBC forward and stay on the cutting edge of technology.
Christina Relyea (Director of Sales & Marketing) – Relyea recently celebrated her 20th anniversary with JBC. Her unimaginably deep industry knowledge and strong customer relationships make her the perfect person to head up JBC’s sales, marketing, and customer service departments.
Ed Goethals (Director of Finance) – Goethals joined JBC in January 2020 bringing 25+ years of financial leadership and experience to JBC. He is a numbers guy, having led several large manufacturing organizations’ financial departments, and is excited for his new role with JBC.
Rich Higgerson (Director of Manufacturing) – Higgerson is the newest addition to the JBC executive team and brings a wealth of aerospace and tool-making experience to the company. His manufacturing process knowledge and team-building skills are well suited for this critical role.

JB Cutting specializes in made-to-order finished MDF-core components that are complementary to store fixtures, healthcare furnishing environments, residential kitchens and baths, and home organization. Primarily a wood fabricating operation with CNC, edgebanding, and membrane pressing capabilities, JB Cutting is a one-stop-shop
