PHILADELPHIA — CARDONE Industries today announced the appointment of Kevin Cramton as chief executive officer. Cramton, who will assume his duties in September, will succeed Michael Cardone Jr., the driving force behind CARDONE’s rise as a leader in the automotive remanufacturing industry, the company said.

“I look forward to working with the CARDONE Leadership Team to create a stronger company for all our stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, shareholders, and our employees.”
