HICKORY, N.C.-Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company has hired John Mayo as its new general counsel. He will succeed Blake Trimble, who is retiring at the end of this month.

Trimble has helped guide Hickory Springs and its management throughout his 13 years with the company.

"Blake's guidance, opinion and diverse legal experience have made him a trusted and well respected part of our team," said David Colburn, president/CEO of Hickory Springs. "He has been a mentor, leader, teacher and valued friend to us all and will certainly be missed."

Mayo will begin immediately as the company's new general counsel. He has been previously employed with other manufacturing companies including Coltec Industries, Goodrich Corporation, and Enpro Industries. 

"While we will all miss Blake, I am very pleased to welcome John Mayo," Colburn said. "John is a seasoned general counsel who we all feel sure will continue and expand on the fine representation and sound guidance that Blake brought to Hickory Springs throughout his 13 years of service to the company."
