MEDINA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2019--
International Inc. (NYSE: RPM) today announced that Craig Morford
has stepped down from his position on the RPM board of directors as a
result of his retirement from Cardinal Health and his acceptance of a
new executive position at a company in the energy industry that does not
have senior leaders serving on other public company boards.
“During his time as director, Craig’s business acumen and deep
experience in a variety of legal and compliance matters brought valuable
insight to our organization,” stated Frank C. Sullivan, chairman and CEO
of RPM. “We’re grateful for the significant contributions he made while
serving on RPM’s board for the past six years, and we wish him the best.”
Morford was elected to the RPM board of directors in 2013 after a
distinguished 20-year career with the U.S. Department of Justice, which
included an appointment by President George W. Bush as acting U.S.
deputy attorney general. In 2008, he joined Cardinal Health as chief
compliance officer and later became chief legal and compliance officer,
a position he has held for the past decade.
“Following Craig’s departure, our board will be comprised of 12 members.
With the recent appointments of Kirk Andrews and John Ballbach this past
year, we believe RPM’s board remains sufficiently staffed in the key
skill sets and expertise that are necessary for strong corporate
governance,” added Sullivan. “We don’t anticipate appointing any
additional board members at this time.”
