Kaman CEO informs of passing of predecessor Paul Kuhn 30 Sep, 16, Source: Kaman
It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing over the weekend of my predecessor as CEO, Paul Kuhn.
Paul, who joined Kaman in 1999, served as Chairman, President and CEO, retiring in February 2008. He had the unenviable task of succeeding Mr. Kaman after his fifty-five years as CEO. Paul led a fundamental transformation of our company and retired with the company positioned to benefit from strong positive momentum. In addition to a smooth transition from the leadership of our founder, his accomplishments include the recapitalization of the company from a dual class stock structure, the sale of the music segment and the development of a strong board and management team. He also recognized the value of our specialty bearing franchise as a platform for growth, championing its transition to lean manufacturing excellence and acquiring the RWG business in Germany. Also acquired under his leadership was the Joint Programmable Fuze program our largest single program in the company today.
Paul contributed greatly to the success we enjoy today and he will be missed. Please join me in keeping his family in your thoughts and prayers.
