Lydall has appointed Sara Greenstein as the new president and chief executive officer of the company, effective November 18, 2019. Greenstein will succeed Dale G. Barnhart, who will be retiring after more than 12 years of service with Lydall. The company produces specialty engineered products for the thermal/acoustical and filtration/separation markets.

Greenstein has extensive operational expertise and ability to lead large, multifaceted global organisations. Since 2015, she has been a senior executive of United States Steel Corporation (US Steel), an integrated steel producer. Most recently, she led the approximately $4.0 billion global consumer solutions business unit of US Steel, with more than 4,000 employees at eight large operating facilities. Prior to joining US Steel, Greenstein served for 12 years in a variety of senior leadership positions at Underwriters Laboratories, a safety science company that provides chemical emissions certification, multiple listing and private labelling, chemical testing, environmental claim validation, factory inspection, field evaluation, and clinical services, according to Lydall.

Greenstein currently serves as a member of the board of directors of Briggs & Stratton Corporation, the leading manufacturer of small engines, pressure washers, and power generation for lawn and garden turf care, and is a member of Briggs & Stratton’s finance committee and nominating & governance committee.

“After conducting a thorough search process, we are delighted to appoint a chief executive of Greenstein’s calibre. Greenstein’s record of driving sustainable profitability and creating innovative solutions in a manufacturing environment makes her ideally suited to serve as Lydall’s next president and CEO. On behalf of the entire board, I’m pleased to welcome Greenstein and am excited to work closely with her as we continue to leverage the unique attributes of the Lydall brand and manufacturing superiority to deliver increased value to our shareholders,” Marc T. Giles, chairman of Lydall’s board of directors.

“The opportunity to join the Lydall leadership team and serve alongside more than 3,300 talented Lydall employees worldwide as the company’s next president and CEO is a great honour. Lydall is synonymous with quality and continuous innovation and improvement, which brings value to customers around the world. I am confident that we are well-positioned to drive long-term profitable growth for the benefit of Lydall’s employees, customers, and shareholders,” Greenstein said.
