Cardone Turns 50, Elects Board of Advisors

March 9, 2020

Cardone Industries Inc. recently reached its 50-year milestone and has formed a new board of advisors to guide it into its next 50 years.

It was co-founded in 1970 by industry pioneer Michael Cardone Sr. and his son, Michael Cardone Jr., from the simple idea of remanufacturing windshield wiper motors. Cardone has grown to become one of the largest remanufacturers of automotive parts in North America and introduced a sustainable manufacturing process that was years ahead of its time, says the company.

Cardone recently formed a new board of advisors, which includes Dan Langdon, an industry veteran and former CEO of East Penn, Mark Blinn, a board member of Texas Instruments and former CEO of Flowserve; and Benjamin Duster, who has held top executive positions across several industries including healthcare and finance. Also serving on the board are Pierre McNeil and David Levenson, who are part of the leadership team of Cardone’s new owner, Brookfield Asset Management.

“Each team member brings valuable skills, experience and insight that will broaden our perspective and advance our strategic plan as we launch into Cardone’s next 50 years of industry leadership,” says Mike Carr, Cardone’s chief executive officer. “Cardone’s entrepreneurial roots, sustainable mission and re-engineered leadership team are the ingredients that will propel the company forward and continue our tradition of helping our customers win.”
