MINNEAPOLIS, July 13, 2010-- Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI), announced today that it will be promoting Franklin Cardenas to Vice President, Global Engine Aftermarket. Most recently, Cardenas was Managing Director, Latin America, with responsibilities for our businesses in Mexico, Central America, and South America.  Cardenas will be replacing Joseph Lehman, who was previously announced as our new Vice President, Global Operations.

Cardenas, 42, started with Donaldson Mexico in 1995 as an Account Manager. Cardenas also held various Engine Products and Industrial Air Filtration sales management positions covering our Mexican and Central American markets prior to being named Managing Director, Latin America in 2005. Cardenas earned a B.S. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and an MBA from Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey.

"Franklin's experience in managing and growing our businesses in emerging markets makes him the ideal person to lead our Global Engine Aftermarket business," said Jay Ward, Senior Vice President, Engine Products. "Our Latin American business has nearly tripled in sales since Franklin took over in 2005 and he led our successful return to Brazil in 2006. Without his efforts and the tremendous team he put in place, our success in Latin America would not have been possible. Franklin's experience at growing our businesses will be instrumental in driving our aftermarket growth around the world."
