Carpenter Technology reveals senior leadership changes

February 27, 2018

Carpenter Technology Corporation, USA, has announced senior operating leadership changes within the organisation. The company announced that Joe Haniford, CEO, will assume a new role as Vice President, Business Management Office and Global Advanced Engineering, as well the leadership of Environmental, Health and Safety.

In his new role, Haniford will be focused on the “continued implementation of the Carpenter Operating Model and lean manufacturing principles across the company’s facilities.” This transition is said to be in-line with the strategic plan initiated when Haniford joined Carpenter in July 2015.

In addition, Mike Murtagh will be appointed Vice President and Group President of Carpenter’s Specialty Alloys Operations (SAO). Murtagh previously served as Carpenter’s Chief Technology Officer, a role which the company will now look to fill. Both leadership changes will be effective July 1, 2018.

Tony Thene, President and CEO of Carpenter, stated, “Over the last three years, we have executed a concerted transformational strategy to strengthen our long-term growth profile and these organisational changes are consistent with our leadership transition plan. Joe has been an invaluable contributor to our success in elevating Carpenter through establishing manufacturing and safety disciplines that have become the foundation of the Carpenter Operating Model.”

“We thank him for his many contributions as Chief Operating Officer, and I am pleased that Joe will continue to be part of the team,” he continued. “He will focus primarily on the further implementation of the Carpenter Operating Model across our facilities as we know we are still in the early stages of its execution.”

Speaking on Murtagh’s new appointment, he added, “Since joining Carpenter as the Chief Technology Officer, Mike has demonstrated strong technical and manufacturing operations expertise and has played an important role in our continued transition to becoming an irreplaceable supply chain partner for our customers. Given Mike’s background, I believe he is the ideal candidate to assume the manufacturing and business responsibilities of our SAO segment.”
