Michael Shor, who had been serving as interim president and chief executive officer of Kokomo-based Haynes International Inc. (Nasdaq: HAYN) since May, has been appointed to the positions on a full-time basis. He previously served as the alloy manufacturer's board chairman and was executive vice president of Philadelphia-based Carpenter Technology Corp.

Robert Getz has been named Haynes' next board chair and Shor will continue to be a member of the company's board, where he has served since 2012. Shor says "as I step into this role (as president and CEO), I am truly energized when I see and understand the significant potential that exists within Haynes. Haynes has excellent hard-working people, terrific technology, innovative specialty alloys and products and significant opportunities for growth." Shor has spent some 30 years in the metals industry.

He succeeds Mark Comerford, who announced his retirement earlier this year after nearly a decade at the helm.
