How A Successful Partnership Between HR And Operations Drives Success

Armstrong World Industries (NYSE: AWI), a leading U.S. manufacturer of Ceiling Solutions, has seen its market value double and its top line growth rate nearly triple in the three years since its public spin in April 2016. This was fueled, in part, by the successful integration of 3 different acquisitions. Since 83% of acquisitions fail to boost returns, the curious case study of AWI is one worth studying. Join our seminar and learn how the CHRO of this leading U.S. manufacturer partnered with business unit leaders to evolve company culture and drive business growth, both organically and via M&A.

Our June panel consisted of AWI executives Ellen Romano, CHRO, and Aron Gawne, Director of Architectural Specialties Operations. The panel was moderated by John Lawler, Managing Partner and CEO of PrimeGenesis.
