Valspar Changes Chairs

At Minneapolis-based Valspar, the world’s sixth-largest paint and coatings company, president and chief executive officer Gary E. Hendrickson has taken on the additional role of chairman of the Board of Directors.

Hendrickson was named Valspar’s president and chief operating officer (COO) in 2008. He became president and CEO in June 2011 and had been expected to assume Mansfield’s board position as well.

“Gary’s proven leadership, deep understanding of the coatings industry and his vision for Valspar’s long-term growth make him uniquely qualified to lead our board,” said Jeffrey H. Curler, the company’s lead director.

“His appointment completes the transition plan we have had in place since Gary became CEO a year ago. We thank Bill for his many contributions to Valspar and wish him well in his retirement.”

Hendrickson, a Harvard MBA, joined Valspar in 1994 and has held a variety of senior leadership roles.
