EnPro Industries has promoted John Cox, currently president of EnPro company Stemco, to chief innovation officer of EnPro. Cox will continue in his responsibilities to Stemco as group president.
Todd Anderson has been named to replace Cox as president of Stemco.
Cox joined Stemco in 1996 as vice president of engineering and then joined EnPro’s Garlock Sealing Technologies unit in 1999 as vice president of engineering. He was later promoted to vice president and general manager of Garlock Klozure Dynamic Seals, located in Palmyra, N.Y. In 2008, Cox returned to Stemco as president.
“Jon led Stemco to record sales and earnings after he became division president,” said Steve Macadam, president and chief executive officer of EnPro. “Jon’s leadership has shaped a successful program of innovation at Stemco and he has co-led the EnPro Innovation Council for the last two years. Our ability to develop new products and create new services for our customers is critical to the future. We expect these products and services not only to add value for our customers but also to add value for EnPro.”
Anderson had worked with Stemco from 1994 to 2011 as a key contributor in engineering, operations and as vice president and general manager of the Stemco Kaiser suspension business located in Millington, MI. He served most recently as vice president of EnPro’s Garlock Pipeline Technologies (GPT) Division for the past three years. Anderson began his career at Stemco and held roles of increasing responsibility in engineering and operations.
“Todd has provided excellent leadership in his roles within EnPro. He led the business strategies in each of the businesses within his responsibility and has contributed greatly to our success,” said Cox. “We are fortunate to have him lead Stemco and wish him well in this new position.”
