Our challenge is to balance these opportunities in a way that benefits our stockholders, customers and the communities in which we operate."
Readey spent 13 years with Caterpillar, Inc., where he held positions of increasing responsibility. At CAT he led several major corporate initiatives, including launch of the Company's emission control business, management of long-term product strategy to meet increasingly stringent EPA regulations, and development of advanced materials and processes for the Company's operating units.
