Mr. Alness’ expanded responsibilities include all operations and commercial activities in North and South America for the forest products business within the Forest Products Resins Division.
Mr. Alness previously served as Vice President, North America Forest Products, a position he has held since 2006. He joined Borden Chemical Inc., a predecessor company of Hexion, in 1978 and has held increasingly larger roles over his career, all of which were focused on engineered wood products.
“Mark’s promotion and expanded duties reflects his decades of proven leadership within Hexion and he is uniquely qualified to take on this newly created role,” said Craig O. Morrison, Chairman, President and CEO. “Under Mark’s leadership, we look to continue the strong growth within our forest products business that we’ve delivered over the last several years. We remain committed to delivering innovative solutions to our forest products customers by leveraging the strong commercial and operations team that we’ve built in North and South America.”
