The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has announced a significant reorganization of its business during a week that saw the retirement or exit of five senior ACC executives.
“Since joining ACC five months ago, I’ve had a chance to understand the industry’s concerns and priorities,” said ACC president and CEO Jack Gerard. “I am now aligning our organization to meet these goals by creating an advocacy organization with a stronger voice on the issues most important to the industry.” Those issues include natural gas and security.
Charles Van Vlack, executive vice president; Rodney Lowman, executive vice president; Courtney Price, vice president; Terry Yosie, vice president; and Clifford Howlett, vice president and executive director of Chlorine Chemistry Council, all tendered their resignations or retirement notices last week.
ACC will conduct a search for individuals to replace the vacancies.
Gerard took over the reins at ACC on July 1. In recent years, the ACC has lost significant members such as Huntsman, Lyondell Chemical and Chevron Phillips Chemical.
