HarbisonWalker International Announces CEO Transition

The HWI Board of Directors has elected Carol R. Jackson to be HWI’s next Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 July 2017. Jackson currently serves as Senior Vice-President and General Manager at HWI. Delo retired after serving in several manufacturing and management roles for more than 30 years. Most recently, he has been Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at HWI for three and one-half years. Previously, he held several progressive roles at Honeywell International, including leadership positions in chemicals, operating systems and integrated supply chain. Under Delo’s leadership at HWI, in less than four years, the company combined three of the top US refractories companies together as one, and reorganized and rebranded as HarbisonWalker International. During that time, the organization restructured and built exceptional, high performing teams. Through the development of the HarbisonWalker Business System (HBS), HWI began laying the groundwork for transformative changes in its approach to virtually every aspect of its business – from internal processes and structure to safety, quality and performance. In February 2017, HWI announced a USD 30 million investment to build a new, state-of-the-art monolithics plant in South Point, Ohio, that will be operational by early 2018. http://thinkhwi.com
