"We are extremely pleased to have an executive of Joe's caliber on the Hillenbrand, Inc. management team," said Camp. "His successful track record, deep industry knowledge, and past broad experiences will serve him well as he leads this division into the future. As I focus my attention on increasing shareholder value in our new publicly traded company, Hillenbrand, Inc., I have great confidence in Joe's ability to lead the Batesville Casket team," added Camp.

"Undoubtedly, this is the most exciting challenge I have had in my career. Batesville Casket is an iconic brand in the funeral service industry and I very much look forward to continuing to build on the great legacy that Ken and others have built over the years. I am also fortunate to be working with a strong management team that serves our customers with superior products and services," said Raver.
