"The Board is extremely enthusiastic about this appointment," said Don Mrozek, Panduit director. "[Andrew Caveny's] role as executive chairman continues our legacy of family business leadership, while Dennis is ideally suited to lead the company forward as CEO. He has 30 years of experience in the electrical and communications industry and a proven track record of success. Andrew and Dennis are committed to growing Panduit for the benefit of its employees, business partners, shareholders, and the communities in which it operates."

"Panduit is well positioned for growth, thanks to our exceptional leadership team, employees and channel partner community," said Caveney. "I'd like to thank Tom for his contribution to the success of the company and its culture. Tom's vision, integrity, work ethic, and commitment to Panduit and our employees is without equal."
