Filtration Group Names Tim McCarty as President and Chief Executive Officer


CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JANUARY 7, 2019 – Filtration Group today announced that Tim McCarty will assume the role of President and Chief Executive Officer effective January 2019. McCarty joined Filtration Group in 2012 as CFO and played a critical role in growing the company to more than $1.5 billion in revenue. He has been instrumental in shaping Filtration Group’s mission to make the world safer, healthier and more productive.

George Nolen, CEO of Filtration Group since 2016, said, “Tim has a long track-record of excelling in leadership positions. He surrounds himself with great people, stays focused on serving our customers and knows the value of our unique culture. He is the perfect fit to lead the company and carry out our vision.” Nolen will remain with Filtration Group in the role of Chairman.

“I can’t imagine a more exciting time to become Filtration Group’s CEO,” said McCarty. “We are a team of entrepreneurs who are inspired by the unique opportunity to build something remarkable and make the world a better place. It’s a privilege to do this alongside my 7,000+ colleagues around the globe.”

McCarty became President of Filtration Group’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) division in early 2017. As President of the IAQ division, he developed and implemented a customer-focused strategy, tightened operations and built a mission-based culture—all of which drove significant revenue increases in the division. Rob Carpio, President of the Purafil business unit of Filtration Group, will become President of the IAQ division previously run by McCarty.

Prior to joining Filtration Group in 2012, McCarty had a 23-year career at Deloitte & Touche LLP, including 15 years as a partner. Most recently, he served as the Central Region Managing Partner, where he had management responsibility for a team of close to 2,000 professionals in 20 different cities. McCarty is a graduate of the University of Illinois.
