Pall president stepping down

Donald B. Stevens, president of Pall Corp., who is also the top executive of one of its major divisions, Pall Industrial, is retiring after a 40-year career, the Port Washington company said Wednesday.

Stevens, 65, will remain as Pall Corp. president until the end of the fiscal year July 31.

However he is retiring now from his divisional jobs as chief operating officer and president of Pall Industrial.

In a prepared statement Wednesday Stevens said, “I am proud to have served Pall Corporation in so many areas of increasing responsibility and look back on the company's accomplishments with a keen sense of satisfaction.”

Pall Corp., with total 2009 revenues of $2.3 billion, makes industrial filtration, separation and purification systems. The Pall Industrial division accounts for nearly 60 percent of sales for the overall corporation.

Replacing him at the Pall Industrial division as chief operating officer is Roberto Perez, who had been president of a separate division, Pall Life Sciences. Perez joined Pall Corp. in January 2000 and has more than 30 years of medical device and pharmaceutical experience.

Eric Krasnoff, chairman and chief executive of Pall Corp., will keep those titles and take on the additional position of president after Stevens retires from that job in July.

Krasnoff said in the Wednesday news release, “Every part of the business has benefited from Don's leadership and drive. Don has seen Pall grow from $24.5 million in sales to $2.3 billion. He has successfully led Pall Industrial through the recent difficult period to a return to growth.”
