Michael Faulkner has been named as President at Garlock, an EnPro Industries company. He takes over for Eric Vaillancourt, who has been named President of STEMCO, a sister EnPro company.
“As a longtime employee of Garlock, I am excited to have the opportunity to continue my career within a company that I believe in deeply,” said Faulkner. “Garlock’s commitment to innovation is fundamental to its growth – I don’t consider this to be a manufacturing company, but rather an engineering company that builds what it develops.”
Faulkner will be responsible for establishing the strategic direction for the company and will oversee global operations, and enable customer driven product innovation. He will also be responsible for ongoing implementation of EnPro’s dual bottom line approach that places financial performance of the organization and human development of all employees on an equal footing.
“We are pleased to announce Michael Faulkner as the new President of Garlock,” said Marvin Riley, COO, EnPro “His diverse background and demonstrated leadership within the organization will provide him with a unique perspective on continuing recent growth and building Garlock’s service and solutions offerings to benefit the needs of our customers.”
Faulkner has been with the company for 13 years, most recently as VP and GM of GPT (a member of the Garlock family of companies). He has a Bachelor of Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology and an MBA from the William E. Simon School at the University of Rochester.
