The company announced it has appointed Alex Molinaroli to be president, CEO, and chairman. He will take up the two former positions on October 1, and become chairman on January 1 of next year. He will replace outgoing Chairman and CEO Stephen Roell, who will retire on December 31. Roell will remain chairman until then.

The company also declared its latest quarterly common stock dividend. The $0.19 per share will be paid on October 2 to shareholders of record as of September 6.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.76 per share. That yields 1.9% at the firm's most recent closing stock price of $41.07.
