Executive Vice President Alfred Stern, currently responsible for the Polyolefin Business and Innovation, has been appointed as CEO effective July 2, 2018. With this appointment, the Supervisory Board recognizes Alfred Stern’s strong contribution to the success of Borealis, which provides the foundation for Alfred, together with his executive management team to drive Borealis through the next growth wave. Alfred Stern joined Borealis in 2008 as Senior Vice President Innovation & Technology, coming from E.I. DuPont de Nemours where he held several international leadership positions. He was promoted to the Executive Board of Borealis in July 2012. Since 2016, Stern has advanced the strategy re-orientation towards the Circular Economy, focussing on developing solutions to remove barriers to higher recycling rates (design for recyclability). One major step in this effort was the acquisition and capacity expansion of mtm Plastics in Germany in 2017, a mechanical plastics recycler. As Executive Vice President for the Polyolefin business, as successor he led a strategy re-direction of the Polyolefin business to drive growth focussing on value creation through innovation and expansion into new global regions resulting in record profitability of the business.

Mark Garrett joined Borealis in 2007, taking over a company in the final stages of a successful scrap and build programme in Europe. The 11 years of Mark Garrett’s tenure represented a significant phase of growth and geographic expansion for the company with both volumes and net profits tripling, with net profits reaching EUR 1.1 billion, in 2017. Over the time there were many significant projects including the very successful Joint Venture mega projects Borouge 2 and Borouge 3 that resulted in Borouge’s capacity growing from 0.6 million tons to 4.5 million tons. In 2016/2017 Garrett initiated the next growth phase for Borealis by filling the pipeline with major investment projects like the joint venture with Total and Nova Chemicals in Texas (USA), the PDH plant in Kallo, Belgium and the further extension of Borouge.
