WASHINGTON, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Danaher Corporation (NYSE: DHR) announced today that Henk van Duijnhoven has been promoted to Senior Vice President and Amir Aghdaei and Henrik Roos have each been appointed Vice President and Group Executive of Danaher.

In his new role, Henk van Duijnhoven will have responsibility for Danaher's Dental segment, which includes KaVo Group and Sybron Dental Specialties.  Danaher's Dental segment generated $1.8 billion of revenue in 2010.  He will report directly to H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Danaher.  Henk joined Danaher in 2002 as Vice President, Business Development for Product Identification.  During his time at Danaher, he has served as General Manager of Videojet EMEA, Managing Director of Linx, and Vice President, Human Resources for Danaher.  In 2008, Henk was appointed Group Executive of KaVo Group and President of KaVo Worldwide.  Henk holds a BS in Automotive Engineering from Hogere Technische School, The Netherlands and an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sloan School of Management.  

Amir Aghdaei joined Danaher in 2009 as President of Tektronix.  During his time with Danaher, Amir has been instrumental in driving core growth and improving performance at Tektronix and in building out Danaher's Test & Measurement segment through acquisition.  He has more than 20 years of experience in the test and measurement industry.  Amir earned an MBA from the University of Delaware, Masters of Science from Georgia State University and a Bachelors of Science Degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Iran.

Henrik Roos joined Danaher in November 2009 via the PaloDEx acquisition where he was the President and Chief Executive Officer. Most recently he has served as the President of KaVo's Imaging Group where he had responsibility for leading Danaher's dental imaging businesses globally. Henrik brings over 20 years of Dental industry experience to Danaher. In addition to his imaging responsibilities, Henrik will now have responsibility for all of Danaher's North American dental equipment businesses, including Pelton & Crane.  Henrik holds a MS in Engineering from the University of Technology, Helsinki.  

Mr. Culp stated, "I am pleased to be able to make these key leadership appointments with candidates from within Danaher, which I believe is a testament to the strength and depth of our management team. Henk, Amir and Henrik have consistently demonstrated superior leadership and have been key contributors to Danaher's growth.  I am confident that they are well-equipped to take on the additional responsibilities of their new roles and that they will continue to make instrumental contributions as we continue to build a premier global enterprise."
