Calgon Carbon (CCC) - Get Report named William R. Newlin and Timothy G. Rupert directors, expanding board membership to 10.

Newlin, 64, has been executive vice president and chief administrative officer at

Dick's Sporting Goods

(DKS) - Get Report

since 2003. Previously he was chairman and CEO of law firm Buchanan Ingersoll PC.

Rupert, 58, is CEO of titanium giant

RTI International Metals

(RTI)

and is also a member of its board.

"I am extremely pleased that Bill and Tim are joining our board," said CEO John Stanik. "Bill's broad legal and business background with both industrial and consumer companies fits well with Calgon Carbon's diverse product line and customer base. Tim's experience in leading a manufacturing company that is similar in size to Calgon Carbon, and faces the same challenges as our company, will be a valuable asset."

Calgon said it started searching for new directors when it became apparent that a current board member won't stand for re-election when his term expires due to the company's director retirement policy.

On Friday, Calgon rose 9 cents to $5.19.
