TCM Gets New President

Did anyone else notice this? Yesterday, Teledyne Continental Motors got a new president. To quote from the press release:
Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) today announced the appointment of Rhett C. Ross as President of Teledyne Continental Motors, Inc., (Piston Engines), effective November 5, 2007. Ross, age 43, succeeds Bryan L. Lewis. Lewis will be retiring on February 1, 2008, after a distinguished 27-year career with Teledyne companies.
Oddly, there is no further information about Ross. This is the only mention of him in the press release. Usually, in this kind of press release, there's a short bio of the new exec, with a glowing description of his track record at the company, etc. In this case, nothing.

Ross is not listed on the Teledyne executive-biographies page. I did a Google search on him and came up with 10 hits, most of them referring to the TCM press release. None of the other hits had anything to say about him.

This seems more than a little queer. Who is this guy, I wonder?
