Leggett & Platt's Board of Directors announced the promotion of two senior executives.  Karl G. Glassman is promoted to President of the company, and retains his current role as Chief Operating Officer.  Glassman has served Leggett & Platt as COO since 2006, as both Executive Vice President and a director since 2002, and in various management roles since 1982.

Matthew C. Flanigan is promoted to Executive Vice President, and retains his current role as Chief Financial Officer.  Flanigan has served Leggett & Platt as a director since 2010, as Senior Vice President since 2005, as CFO since 2003, and in other management roles since 1997.

CEO David S. Haffner stated, "We are excited to have individuals of Karl's and Matt's caliber – extremely capable leaders with high integrity, determination, and keen business acumen – continue to lead our company. These two have been instrumental in helping orchestrate a significant change in the company's strategic direction, and have led our team to generate outstanding TSR(1) performance for our investors. We have high expectations of what they will continue to accomplish."

Furthermore, the Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors has recommended, and the full board anticipates, the election of David S. Haffner as Chair at the board's May meeting. Haffner has served Leggett & Platt as CEO since 2006, and will continue in that capacity; he has been a director since 1995, and held various management roles for three decades.

Haffner would succeed Richard T. Fisher, whom the Nominating Committee recommended for election as Vice Chair and Lead Director. Fisher has been board Chair since 2008, served as Presiding Director from 2003-2008, and joined the company's board in 1972.

Haffner, Glassman, and Flanigan each executed renewed employment agreements with the company.  The new agreements expire in May 2017.
