Bruker Corporation has appointed John Ornell, a former chief financial officer (CFO) at Waters Corporation, to its Board of Directors. He will serve for an initial term that will expire at the company’s 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and will also serve as a member of the Board’s Audit Committee.

Ornell joined Waters in 1994 and served in a variety of operational and financial leadership roles before assuming the position of CFO, which he held from 2001 to 2013. During 2014, he continued to serve Waters on a part-time, transitional basis. Prior to joining Waters, Ornell progressed through a series of roles of increasing responsibility at a number of multinational corporations, primarily in operational finance functions. Ornell holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Southern New Hampshire University.

‘I am pleased to join the Board of Directors of Bruker Corporation, given its impressive track record of product innovation and technology leadership within the scientific instruments industry,’ Ornell said. ‘I look forward to assisting Bruker and its management team in their ongoing operational improvement efforts to drive enhanced operating margins.’

‘John Ornell is another outstanding addition to Bruker’s Board of Directors,’ commented Frank Laukien, Bruker’s president and CEO. ‘His excellent track record in our industry, and John’s broad experience in operational finance, systems implementation, international operations, tax planning and as CFO of a very successful company will enable John to provide further momentum to our transformation and to shareholder value creation at Bruker.’
