Norm Johnson, Clarcor’s retiring executive chairman, was honored with a reception by Baldwin Filters, a division of Clarcor, on Oct. 17.
Johnson started his Clarcor career at Baldwin Filters in 1990 as president, and was named group vice president – filtration products in 1993. He became Clarcor president and CEO in 1995 and chairman and CEO in 2005. In preparation for his retirement, Clarcor says Johnson was named executive chairman of the board in Dec. 2011 and Chris Conway of Baldwin was named president and CEO.
“I have been fortunate to work for Clarcor for over twenty years, with the last fifteen of those serving as either president or CEO. During that time, Clarcor has evolved into one of the leading filtration companies in the world,” says Johnson, who will officially retire Nov. 30. “While I’m proud of what we have accomplished, I am confident that Chris and his management team have the capacity to take the company to even greater heights.”
