Two DMI Industries executives resigned Monday and have accepted new jobs, officials with the West Fargo plant announced.
DMI President Lars Moller and Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Matt Gadow are leaving the wind tower manufacturing company for jobs with another wind energy company, said Amy Richardson, the company's communications director.
The name and location of the company that Moller and Gadow will work for is unknown.
Moller and Gadow's job announcements are expected later this week.
The announcement comes less than a month after a DMI worker was killed in a work-related accident.
Gadow said Monday night that he and Moller have been in talks about joining another company "for months," adding that the Oct. 2 accident has nothing to do with the decision to leave DMI.
"We decided now is the time to make the change and work on opportunities they have in front of them," Gadow said of his new employer.
"No one asked us to leave. It's unfortunate these things crossed paths here," he said of the accident that claimed the life of worker Jeffrey Mosseau.
Moller could not be reached for comment Monday night.
DMI CEO Chuck Hoge said he will take over Moller and Gadow's duties until their positions are filled. He said Moller and Gadow did not say before Monday that they were leaving, but added it is common for wind energy officials to move quickly onto other highly competitive opportunities in the industry.
DMI's West Fargo plant has 325 employees. It also has operations in Fort Erie, Ont., and a plant under construction in Tulsa, Okla.
Moller and Gadow have worked for DMI since 2003.
