CIRCOR Appoints Norman E. Johnson To Board Of Directors

CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for the energy, aerospace and industrial markets, today announced that it has appointed Norman E. Johnson as a director, effective immediately. Mr. Johnson is the Executive Chairman and former President and CEO of Clarcor, Inc. (NYSE: CLC), a global manufacturer of filtration products, services and systems. Mr. Johnson, who will serve as a Class I director with a term expiring at CIRCOR’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2015, succeeds Thomas E. Naugle, who has retired from the Board due to family priorities. Mr. Naugle had served as a director since October 2002.

Bill Higgins, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CIRCOR, said, “We are pleased to appoint Norm Johnson to the CIRCOR Board and look forward to working closely with him. Norm has a successful track record of creating shareholder value, including building Clarcor into one of the world’s leading filtration companies, especially in the oil and gas markets. His industry knowledge will be a valuable asset as we continue to execute our growth strategy. I also would like to personally thank Tom Naugle for his nearly 10 years of dedicated service to the Board.”

Mr. Johnson has held multiple executive leadership positions within Clarcor during the past 22 years, including 11 years as Chairman, President and CEO (2000-2011) and five years as President and Chief Operating Officer (1995-2000). Mr. Johnson, who also serves on the Board of Schneider National, a privately-held multi-billion dollar trucking and logistics company, holds a BBA degree from the University of Iowa and an MBA degree from Drake University. He will serve on the CIRCOR Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
