John Canning Named to Corning Board

Corning Inc. has appointed John A. Canning, Jr., co-founder and chairman of Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, (MDP) to the company's board of directors, effective immediately. The board determined that Canning qualifies as an independent director. In addition to his general responsibilities as a director, he will also serve on the board's finance and audit committees.

Canning will hold office until Corning's annual meeting of shareholders on April 28, 2011, at which time he will stand for re-election. His appointment brings the number of Corning directors to 15; the size of the board has ranged from 13 to 18 directors since 1990.

Canning brings extensive knowledge of finance and private equity investment to Corning’s board. He spent 24 years with First Chicago Corp., most recently as an executive vice president of the First National Bank of Chicago and president of First Chicago Venture Capital, prior to co-founding Madison Dearborn Partners in 1992. He served as MDP’s CEO from 1992 until assuming his current position as chairman in 2007.
