LyondellBasell Announces Changes in the Management

LyondellBasell has appointed Jeffrey A. Kaplan executive vice president and chief legal officer, effective March 1. Kaplan (46) succeeds Craig B. Glidden, who will leave the company later this month to become executive vice president and general counsel of the General Motors Company.

LyondellBasell's Supervisory Board has nominated Kaplan for appointment to the Management Board. The company's shareholders will be asked to elect Kaplan to the Management Board at its 2015 Annual General Meeting. In addition to leading the legal department, Kaplan will have management responsibility for the company's government affairs and corporate communications.

Kaplan has been deputy general counsel since joining LyondellBasell in December 2009. From 2001 to 2009 he served in a variety of leadership roles at Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, including deputy general counsel. From 1992 to 2001 he was in private law practice in Houston.

In related news, LyondellBasell announced yesterday that it has reached an agreement with Karyn F. Ovelmen, executive vice president and chief financial officer, for her separation from the company. Under the agreement, Ovelmen will continue as CFO for up to three months while the company conducts a search for her successor.
