BEDFORD, Mass.—Kedar Murthy has left his position as vice president and general manager of Lehigh Technologies, to take a senior management role at Boston Materials Inc.

While confirming Murthy’s departure at the end of March, a spokesman for Lehigh said there was, as yet, no statement available about the development.

Murthy, who had been at Lehigh for over 10 years, previously was executive vice president of GPX International Tire and held senior management roles at Cabot Corp.

He helped to develop Lehigh from a start-up to the world’s largest supplier of micronized rubber materials and oversaw its acquisition by Michelin in October.

Bedford, Mass.-based Boston Materials announced Murthy’s appointment as chief commercial officer at the start of March. The company specializes in the development of carbon-fiber composites for applications including aircraft, wind turbines, electric vehicles and bicycles.
