Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions, announces the promotion of Wim Roels, previously responsible for the Moulding business as Vice President, to Senior Vice President for the Business Unit Film & Fibre, effective August 1, 2010. Thierry Chevrier, coming from BASF, has been appointed his successor as Vice President Business Unit Moulding as of September 1, 2010.

Wim Roels graduated as a chemical engineer in 1983 from KIHO Gent and started his career with Recticel in the polyurethane and phenolic foam business. He joined Borealis as a Technical Service & Development Engineer for moulding applications in 1989, followed by several positions across the company including Plant Manager in Norway, Research Centre Manager in Porvoo (Finland), General Manager for Borealis Belgium, Vice President for Polyolefin Research & Development and Vice President Innovation & Technology. Since May 1, 2008 Wim Roels has been leading Borealis' activities in moulding, driving innovation in the world of packaging and technical products.

Thierry Chevrier brings with him over 15 years of international experience in a variety of senior roles in the Plastics and Pigments industry. Most recently, Thierry was Vice President Global Asset Management & Global Restructuring Management Pigments, focusing largely on the integration and streamlining of Ciba Pigments into BASF, encompassing some 22 sites and 1,500 employees spread across the globe. Prior to this, he was located in the USA for approximately three years as Vice President Business Unit Plastics, Coatings, Inks & Specialities. His first assignment within BASF as Business Director for Pigments and Additives gave him an intensive background in the Packaging, Automotive and Construction Industries including the successful acquisition of Johnson Polymer. Thierry Chevrier has an MSc in Organic Chemistry from the Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble and a MBA from the Arizona State University, USA.

"Wim's extensive experience with Borealis and his broad knowledge about the chemical and plastics industry from an innovation, production and market perspective makes him the ideal person to drive forward our growing film and fibre business," says Borealis Chief Executive Mark Garrett. "In addition, we welcome Thierry to Borealis and the Polyolefins team and look forward to sharing and utilising his broad international and strategic industry experience not only to the benefit of our Polyolefins and Moulding business, but also in terms of our group-wide processes in the areas of commercial excellence, sales and marketing processes, and supply chain."
