Henry Company Board names Frank Ready as CEO

Ready brings building products industry experience


Henry Company announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Frank Ready as Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors effective immediately.

“Frank brings exceptional building products industry experience, strong leadership and a track record of career success and accomplishment. In his role, Frank will lead the Company forward in executing on its strategic plans for growth and value enhancement, and will serve as a member of the Henry Board,” said Robert Newbold, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Prior to joining Henry Company, Ready was Executive Vice President of Armstrong Worldwide and CEO of Armstrong Floor Products Worldwide. He was with Armstrong for 30 years and served successfully in a variety of senior leadership roles in the organization throughout his career. “I am very excited about the opportunity to use my background in building products to lead the Company in this period of growth,” said Ready. “While Henry is already the market leader in many of its key addressable markets, I intend to focus the talent and passion of the Company not only to enhance its market position but also to meet or exceed our customer’s expectations.”

The Board also extends its sincere thanks to Mike Kenny for serving as the interim CEO of the Company for the last several months. Mike’s commitment to Henry and his leadership of the Company over these last seven months was essential to the continued strong progress being achieved during our CEO search.
