Mueller Water Products Names New Chairman of the Board

Mueller Water Products, Inc. today announced it has elected Mark J. O’Brien as non-Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors following the retirement of Executive Chairman Gregory E. Hyland.

In January 2017, Hyland stepped down from his role as President and CEO and simultaneously assumed the role of Executive Chairman. As President and CEO, Hyland led the launch of Mueller Water Products as an independent public company, and implemented LEAN Six Sigma processes throughout its manufacturing operations. Under his leadership, the company reduced its debt by $1 billion over the past ten years.

O’Brien is the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Walter Investment Management Corporation and has served as an Independent Director of Mueller Water Products since 2006, and Lead Independent Director since 2015.  Prior to his tenure at Walter Investment Management Corporation, O’Brien held executive leadership roles within the housing industry.

“Mark has made significant contributions in his current role as a board member and Lead Independent Director,” said Scott Hall, President and CEO of Mueller Water Products.  “I look forward to working with him in his new role along with the rest of the board, as we continue to deliver value for our shareholders.”
