Edward has helped to drive the company’s international growth and its global shared service organisations. A frequent world traveller, his 30-years-plus experience in senior operational positions has been pivotal as Emerson significantly extended its footprint and strengthened its global position in that time. 

“Ed has been at my side for almost two decades, and his leadership and dedicated performance have benefitted me, all of his colleagues, our customers and Emerson’s shareholders,” said Emerson Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Farr. “Most recently, Ed was instrumental in the successful restructuring and integration of our valves & controls acquisition – the largest deal in Emerson’s 128-year history. I am grateful to call Ed a friend and I thank him for all he has done to help create a strong future for this company.”
