Norsk Titanium, Plattsburgh, New York, USA, has appointed Stephen L Littauer its new Chief Financial Officer. Littauer reportly offers thirty-two years of executive financial experience with public and private, multi-national companies in the industrial, aerospace and defence industries. He succeeds Bart van Aalst, who has served as CFO for over three years and will now return to his position as a member of the Norsk Board of Directors.
Michael Canario, Norsk’s president and CEO, stated, “Steve’s unique background in large, public company leadership development, coupled with his experience in private equity companies, will prove a vital asset to Norsk as we increase our presence and impact within the Additive Manufacturing industry. As we welcome Steve, I also want to thank Bart for his role on the executive team, as his passion and commitment have been instrumental in our successes to date.”
Most recently, Littauer served as CFO for Ten Cate Advanced Composites and AIP Aerospace. Prior to these roles, he spent seventeen years as a senior-level financial executive with Eaton Corporation and GE Aviation.
“One of the factors that drew me to Norsk is the quality of the team that has been assembled,” commented Littauer. “I am pleased to join a company who is positioned to address the needs of lower costs and shorter lead times facing the aerospace supply chain today. I look forward to helping the company in its next phase of growth.”
