How A Successful Partnership Between HR

And Operations Drives Success at AWI



Armstrong World Industries (NYSE: AWI), a leading U.S. manufacturer of Ceiling Solutions, has seen its market value double and its top line growth rate nearly tripled in the three years since its public spin in April 2016. This was fueled, in part, by the successful integration of 3 different acquisitions. Since 83% of acquisitions fail to boost returns, the curious case study of AWI is one worth studying. Join our seminar and learn how the CHRO of this leading U.S. manufacturer partnered with business unit leaders to evolve company culture and drive business growth, both organically and via M&A.  


Our panel consists of AWI executives Ellen Romano, CHRO, and Aron Gawne, Director of Architectural Specialties Operations. The panel will be moderated by John Lawler, Managing Partner and CEO of PrimeGenesis.
