Henry Company names CEO
El Segundo, California-based Henry Company, makers of building envelope systems, named former Armstrong chief Frank Ready as CEO.
Prior to joining Henry Company, Ready was Executive Vice President of Armstrong Worldwide and CEO of Armstrong Floor Products Worldwide. He was with Armstrong for 30 years and served successfully in a variety of senior leadership roles in the organization throughout his career.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to use my background in building products to lead the Company in this period of growth,” said Ready. “While Henry is already the market leader in many of its key addressable markets, I intend to focus the talent and passion of the Company not only to enhance its market position but also to meet or exceed our customer’s expectations.”
Ready’s new role begins immediately.
“Frank brings exceptional building products industry experience, strong leadership and a track record of career success and accomplishment,” said Robert Newbold, chairman of the board of directors. “In his role, Frank will lead the company forward in executing on its strategic plans for growth and value enhancement, and will serve as a member of the Henry Board.”
Ready replaces Mike Kenny, who served as interim CEO of the company for the last several months.
In November of last year, Ready’s retirement from Armstrong was announced as part of management shuffle.
