Naylor Named President and CEO of NSG Group

The board of NSG Group recently announced the appointment of Craig Naylor as president and CEO. He succeeds Katsuji Fujimoto, who has been appointed chairman of NSG Group in succession to Yozo Izuhara, who will be retiring from the company at the annual shareholders meeting on June 29, 2010. Naylor will join the group on May 1, 2010, as CEO designate, assuming the role of president and CEO on June 29, 2010.

Naylor completed a 36-year international career with DuPont in 2006, most recently as group vice president for DuPont Electronic and Communication Technologies. In the course of his career at DuPont, Craig worked in China, Switzerland, Japan and the U.S. in positions in engineering, production management, manufacturing, product development, sales and marketing, and global business management. He also served as a non-executive director of Delphi Corp. from 2005 to 2009. Craig, who is a U.S. citizen, holds a degree in chemical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology.

“We are delighted that Craig is joining the group as president and CEO,” said Izuhara. “He brings to the company extensive international management experience and expertise in product development, manufacturing and marketing. The board is confident that he has the qualities to lead the NSG Group into the next phase of its development as a global leader in glass and glazing for the building products, automotive and specialty glass markets.”

“I am delighted and honored to have been invited to lead the NSG Group and I am greatly looking forward to the challenge,” said Naylor. “The group enjoys an excellent reputation in the industry for quality and service, innovation, technical excellence, and a strong product range. My aim will be to provide leadership to enable the group to further strengthen its finances, improve its competitiveness and to grow profitably.”
