INDEX Corporation Names New President and CEO as Tom Clark Announces Retirement


Mr. Taylor has over 30 years of experience in the machine tool industry, both in Europe and the United States. Having grown up in the United Kingdom, Mr. Taylor spent most of his working career in Germany.  This includes 27 years at Chiron, where he held positions of increasing responsibility.  He established the Chiron UK’s sales and service and engineering operations, then built Chiron’s used machinery division in Germany. Mr. Taylor spent five years with Chiron America in Charlotte, NC and, most recently, served for eight years as managing director of Stama, Chiron’s sister company.

“Cris brings to INDEX Corporation international sales and service experience combined with a long career working in Germany, which will greatly benefit our operations in North America.” said Mr. Clark.  “When one leaves a leadership position, you always hope to transition to someone who can build on previous accomplishments and continue to grow the organization. Cris will be a great addition to the INDEX team.”
Mr. Clark’s mandate four years ago was to pursue aggressive growth within the North American market. Under his leadership, INDEX revitalized its distribution network, grew its service and applications capabilities, expanded the team in North America and achieved record sales in 2018 and 2019.
