MOOSUP, Conn.—Griswold L.L.C.'s board has elected David Natorski as the firm's CEO, effective June 1. He will replace current CEO Daniel P. Mahoney, who is retiring.
"David has been intimately involved in every aspect of our business and has most recently led the company's expansion into Asia," said Henry Hortenstine, chairman of Griswold's Board of Managers. "We are excited to have such an accomplished executive available to continue Griswold's track record of success."
Natorski has worked for Griswold for more than 33 years in various sales and management positions since being hired in 1984 by Larry Sarni, past president and co-founder of the company. He has spearheaded both the company's growth strategy and its collaborative approach to product development.
"It is an honor to be elected as the new CEO of Griswold," Natorski said. "I look forward to continuing to add value to our existing customer base through the development of the highest-functioning, most cost-efficient solutions that are available in the market today."
Under Mahoney's leadership, Griswold earned a reputation for high-quality engineered products, Hortenstine said.
"During his tenure of over 14 years, Dan has guided the company through both the successful development of its microcellular polyurethane line of business and several exciting new products we will be announcing in the near future," Hortenstine said. "More importantly, he has developed an outstanding group of employees who have dedicated themselves to operational excellence. For his service and dedication, we simply say thank you and wish him the best of luck in his well-earned retirement."
"I have enjoyed my many years at Griswold, and in particular, the opportunity to service our long-standing customers and working with our suppliers to produce world-class products," Mahoney said.
Moosup-based Griswold is a manufacturer of a wide range of engineered cellular rubber and microcellular polyurethane products.
