Pall Elects Its CEO Chairman of the Board

Pall (NYSE: PLL  ) has found another job for its CEO, Larry Kingsley. The company announced that its board has elected him its next chairman, effective immediately. He succeeds Ronald Hoffman, who will take the post of lead director.

Kingsley has been a director at the company, as well as its president and CEO, since October 2011. During that fairly limited time, he has held numerous briefs at the company, including a short term as interim CFO earlier this year.
