I am incredibly grateful for the many opportunities Enpro has afforded me and believe the time is right to begin the process of transitioning to Enpro’s next chapter of financial leadership. We have a terrific team in place, and Enpro is in an exciting position to continue to drive our value-creating strategy forward.”
