Johnson is the chief human resources officer at Irving-based Caterpillar, the world’s largest manufacturer of construction equipment. Her prior experience includes serving as EVP of human resources for Textron Inc., an aviation and aerospace component manufacturer, where she led global human resources, corporate communications, and community affairs.
“We’re pleased to welcome Cheryl to the board of directors,” David Roberts, chairman of the Flowserve board of directors, said in a statement. “With Cheryl’s appointment, we continue our practice of board refreshment to bring new skills, perspectives and experience to help guide Flowserve’s continued bright future.”
Johnson, who earned a Bachelor of Science in operations management as well as an MBA from Northern Illinois University, said she’s excited about joining the Flowserve board.
“I look forward to bringing my experience and expertise into the boardroom to catalyze growth and guide Flowserve’s path in the ever-changing landscape of our industry,” Johnson said.
