Leadership Changes at Trinseo

Trinseo, formerly known as Styron and manufacturer of plastics, latex and rubber, announced a number of leadership changes to add depth to the executive team, and in support of the company’s continued emphasis on governance and succession planning.

Martin Pugh, Senior Vice President and Business President for Performance Materials, has been named Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Trinseo. He will report to Chris Pappas, President and CEO of Trinseo. In this newly created interim role, Pugh will elevate his focus to stimulate and support cross-business optimization initiatives; lead, mentor and partner with the new Business Presidents on key strategic business issues; and support strategic efforts across the company.

Tim Stedman will join Trinseo as Senior Vice President and Business President, Basic Plastics and Feedstocks. He will report to Pugh. Stedman was most recently Business Director, Basic Chemicals, at ExxonMobil Chemical. During his 22-year career at ExxonMobil Chemical, Stedman worked in manufacturing, commercial, product management, strategy development and global business leadership, including assignments in Belgium, the U.S. and the U.K.

Hayati Yarkadas will join Trinseo as Senior Vice President and Business President, Performance Materials. He will report to Pugh. Yarkadas was most recently Senior Vice President and General Manager, Europe, for Tate & Lyle. Prior to that, he worked for DuPont in a series of sales and marketing manager roles, and later was Global Business Director for Advanced Glass Interlayers, and General Manager of the DuPont Teijin Films joint venture.

“These changes to our executive leadership team reflect Trinseo’s continued maturation as a public company,” said Chris Pappas, President and CEO of Trinseo. “We are establishing the COO position as an interim role as the company implements a number of strategic initiatives that must be integrated into our businesses. Martin Pugh’s broad industry experience makes him the ideal executive to drive these strategic initiatives.”

In addition, the following leadership changes were recently announced in the business units: Francesca Reverberi, Global Business Director, Synthetic Rubber, has been named Global Business Director for the newly created Basic Plastics business. She will have global business responsibility for the Styrenic Polymers (including Polystyrene, ABS and SAN) and Polycarbonate businesses.

Celso Magri, Marketing Manager, Styrenic Polymers, Europe/MEA, has been named Global Product Director, Basic Plastics. He will have global product management responsibility for Styrenic Polymers (including Polystyrene, ABS and SAN) and Polycarbonate.

Samer Al Jabi, Global Product Director for Styrenic Polymers, has been named Global Business Director, Synthetic Rubber. Al Jabi joined Trinseo in 2010 as Global Market Manager for Construction, Infrastructure, and Transportations markets, and was promoted to his current role in 2012.
