These changes coincide with Arthur G. Caputo's retirement and transition into a non-executive advisory role. Mr. Caputo has been with the company since 1977 and served as executive vice president and Waters Division president since 2002.
“Art is to be congratulated on a long and successful nearly 40-year career devoted to advancing Waters’ industry-leading technologies and global reach, and we are grateful for his countless contributions to our success,” said Mr. O'Connell. “Our new executive team will enable us to drive our business forward with great continuity, and enhance our strategic and operational capability. I have high confidence in our experienced team to execute our growth plan, and to accelerate the introduction of meaningful new innovations to market."
Current members of the executive committee will play enhanced global functional leadership roles: Mark T. Beaudouin, senior vice president, general counsel and secretary; Eugene G. Cassis, senior vice president and chief financial officer; Elizabeth B. Rae, senior vice President, global human resources.
