Point Blank appoints James Henderson as Acting CEO
Apr '09
Point Blank Solutions Inc, a leader in the field of protective body armor, announced that its Board of Directors voted to remove Larry R. Ellis as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective as of April 16, 2009. The Company also announced that James R. Henderson, Chairman of its Board of Directors, has been asked by the Board to assume the role of Acting Chief Executive Officer until a replacement is found.

“General Ellis and his team helped Point Blank rectify many of the legacy issues the Company has faced while building a strong platform for growth. The Board's actions are in no way a reflection of General Ellis' past leadership, but rather a desire to move in a different direction at this time.”

“Point Blank has some of the industry's most talented people and produces quality, life-saving products for the most important customers in the world. I look forward to taking on the role of CEO and will do everything in my power to help improve our market position, productivity, and our financial performance. Most important, management and the Board will continue to focus on generating higher returns for all shareholders and will pursue all avenues that will help us achieve this shared goal,” Henderson continued.

Mr. Henderson was elected to the Board of Directors at the Company's 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on August 19, 2008 and elected to serve as Chairman of the Board on August 28, 2008. He has more than 27 years of experience as an operating executive with various companies, including defense companies such as ECC International Corp., Aydin Corp. and with the defense and military division of UNISYS Corp.

He also serves as Chairman of the Board of GenCorp Inc., a technology-based manufacturing company in the fields of aerospace and defense, and has served and currently serves as a Director for other public and private companies.
