Vincent Northfield has been named the new president of Pall's aerospace division, the company announced Wednesday.
He will take over for outgoing Pall Aerospace president Jim Western this October, when Western will retire after 19 years at the company.
Northfield will be based in Pall's New Port Richey, Fla. offices. The company, which specializes in making filtration devices, is based in Port Washington.
Northfield joins Pall from Colfax Corp., a manufacturing and engineering company in Maryland, where he served as vice president of global manufacturing. He has previously also worked in the auto industry in the United Kingdom.
