Industrial, Energy and Aerospace & Defense markets, today announced that
Chief Financial Officer Rajeev Bhalla will depart CIRCOR. Mr. Bhalla has

leading executive search firm to conduct a search for a replacement and
intends to evaluate both internal and external candidates.

want to thank Rajeev for all his contributions to the Company over the
last five years, including his work to help guide CIRCOR through its
transformative acquisition of the Fluid Handling business. Given strong
top-line momentum, clear progress in our organizational re-alignment and
integration efforts, and confidence in our long-term growth, cash flow
and margin targets, we believe now is the right time to make this
transition. We appreciate that Rajeev has agreed to remain with the
Company while we conduct a search for a new finance leader and wish him
all the best in his future endeavors."

that the Company's strong financial foundation positions it for
continued success. I look forward to working with the team to ensure a
