Burt took the helm of FMC Corporation in 1991 just after it had completed a major recapitalization of the business, severely impacting the balance sheet. He divested of non-core businesses, streamlined operations, and focused on new market opportunities. His efforts resulted in a doubling of revenues, assets, and net earnings that set the stage for the creation of two separate companies FMC Corporation and FMC Technologies.
