Culp has championed the lean business philosophy, focusing on customer value, driving improvements in safety, quality, delivery and cost, and running the company closer to the customer by creating nearly 30 profit and loss statements to increase operational visibility.
In November 2021, GE announced its plan to form three industry-leading, global public companies focused on aviation, healthcare and energy. Culp will serve as non-executive chairman of the GE healthcare company upon its expected spinoff in early 2023.
He will continue to serve as chairman and CEO of GE and CEO of GE Aerospace until the spinoff of the combined GE Renewable Energy and Power businesses, at which point, he will lead the GE aviation-focused company going forward.
Prior to joining GE, Culp served as president and CEO of Danaher Corp. from 2000 to 2014. Investors and analysts consistently ranked him as one of the top CEOs in annual institutional investor surveys, and Harvard Business Review named Culp one of the Top 50 CEOs in the world.
Culp is a member and immediate past chair of the board of visitors and governors of his alma mater, Washington College, and also serves on the Wake Forest University Board of Trustees.
Previously, Culp was a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School, where he focused on leadership, strategy and general management in the MBA and executive education programs.
A member of Phi Beta Kappa, Culp earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Washington College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
