CEO Forum Welcomes Felton Brush President

By Lori Wright, Media Relations
March 7, 2007

The CEO Forum welcomes Felton Brush President Mark Godfrey Thursday, March 22, 2007.

Godfrey will discuss “What Does Leadership Have To Do With It?” The program begins at 9 a.m. at the New England Center. Coffee and networking begins at 8 a.m. and a full buffet breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m.

Felton Brush Inc. has survived for more than 150 years by reinventing itself. Godfrey will present an overview of the last 26 years and how the company has experienced three major leadership styles, each of which was necessary at that point in the company’s life. In addition, he will discuss how the company was transformed from an old-line hierarchical product-focused manufacturing company to a cross-functionally team-oriented company that focuses on technology-driven market solutions.

Today employee-owned Felton designs and manufactures highly engineered products to serve selected industrial market segments, such as automotive, agriculture machinery and recreational products with sealing, guiding and surface preparation niche applications.

Godfrey received his bachelor's degree from the U.S. Air Force Academy and became a pilot and instructor pilot in the C-130 aircraft for the U.S. Air Force. He joined Felton Brush in 1985 after leaving the military, and served in various capacities such as production supervisor, operations manager and general manager before becoming president in January 1997.

To register or become a member of the CEO Forum, call Barbara Draper at 2-1107, or e-mail her at barbara.draper@unh.edu. The event is free to members and $39 for nonmembers. Please RSVP to Draper by Thursday, March 15.
