Calhoun, Ga. -- Mohawk Industries announced the appointment of Glenn R. Landau as CFO and executive vice president for the company, effective April 1, succeeding Frank H. Boykin, whose planned retirement was announced in November.
“Glenn Landau’s wealth of operational and financial experience, along with his background in international business, will further enhance efforts to achieve our performance targets and deliver profitable growth,” said Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Mohawk’s chairman and CEO. “Glenn’s track record of success leading large global business segments brings valuable perspective and depth to his role as CFO, complements our team and will help accelerate improvements across the enterprise. Having held P&L responsibility in both domestic and international assignments, he understands how to drive results and create the best value for shareholders.”
Landau started his career with International Paper (IP) in 1991, beginning in engineering then moving into manufacturing. He had general management roles in the company’s packaging businesses in the U.S. and Europe before assuming strategic responsibility for IP’s forest resources, real estate and minerals sector in 2003. In 2007, Landau was named vice president and general manager of containerboard packaging and played a key role in the acquisition and integration of Weyerhaeuser’s packaging and recycling businesses. In 2011, he transitioned into a finance role, becoming IP’s vice president of investor relations. From 2013 to 2016, Landau was president of IP’s paper and packaging entity in Brazil, with full P&L responsibility for the segment and strategic direction for the Latin American market. Most recently, he was IP’s chief financial officer, where he led the company’s global finance function heading its capital allocation process and steering its value creation initiatives, while leading a team of more than 2,500 finance and IT professionals around the globe.
“I’m pleased to join a dynamic organization like Mohawk,” said Landau. “I look forward to leading Mohawk’s highly regarded finance team and continuing the company’s growth into new markets and product categories.”
As previously announced, Frank Boykin will take a senior consultant role with the business and support the transition. “Over the past 25 years, Frank’s significant contributions helped grow Mohawk into the world’s largest flooring company,” said Lorberbaum. “He has built a talented financial team, and their continued good work will ensure that this transition runs smoothly.”
