General Cable Announces Gregory J. Lampert To Lead Operations In The Americas

General Cable Corporation (NYSE: BGC) (the Company) is pleased to announce Gregory J. Lampert will assume responsibility for all the Company’s operations in the Americas, which includes Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean as well as Central/South America, effective immediately. General Cable is an industry leader in the Americas with expected annual revenue in the range of $4.5 billion.

Mr. Lampert joined General Cable in 1998 and has held leadership roles touching nearly every aspect of the business. He has served as Executive Vice President, President and Chief Executive Officer for General Cable North America since 2008 and is a member of the Company’s Global Operating Committee. He previously was Executive Vice President and Group President, North American Electrical and Communications Infrastructure since 2007. Prior to that, from 2004 to 2007, he was Vice President and General Manager of Carol® Brand products.

Mr. Lampert holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and an MBA with concentrations in Strategy, Finance and Marketing from the University of Chicago. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Xtek, Inc, a manufacturer of specialty goods for the steel and aluminum industries.

Chief Executive Officer Gregory B. Kenny stated, “I have worked closely with Greg over the last 15 years. He has an in-depth knowledge of our major product lines and functional disciplines. As a member of the Global Operating Committee for the last five years, Greg has helped set strategy and played a key role in the acquisition and integration of Alcan Cable North America and Prestolite Wire. Together, these acquisitions represent more than $800 million of annual revenue. I am confident under Greg’s leadership, we will further advance our strategy of bringing more complex products to rapidly industrializing countries while increasing regional intra-company trade which will enhance our ability to provide seamless customer service. At the same time, we will be better positioned to leverage learning and rapidly share best practices throughout the Americas which will improve our ability to realize savings over time.”
