In making the announcement, James W. Griffith, president and CEO for Timken, explained that effective Sept. 1, Coughlin assumes leadership of the company's Mobile and Process Industries segments while Kyle takes the helm of the Aerospace and Steel segments.  Each also will hold corporate-wide responsibilities, with quality assurance and advancement activities reporting to Coughlin and Kyle overseeing the enterprise's innovation, engineering and technology efforts.  They will continue to report to Griffith.

The company also announced that Salvatore J. Miraglia, president of the Steel Business, intends to retire at the end of the year, after more than 40 years of service with the company.
