Crotty will replace BASF’s Albert Heuser, who is moving to Hong Kong, the EPCA said in a statement.
Heuser has been EPCA president since 1 January 2009 and was initally appointed to serve a three-year term, the EPCA said. He is to be BASF’s president of the regional market and business development, Asia-Pacific.
Olivier Greiner, vice president of marketing and sales for Total Petrochemicals, is to join EPCA's executive committee as vice president, it said.
Three senior board members – Heuser, former president Boy Litjens and former vice president Theo Walthie – have stepped down, the association added.
Rainer Diercks, president of BASF’s petrochemicals division; Peter Holicki, global manufacturing vice president, hydrocarbons and energy for Dow Chemical; and Huub Meessen, managing director of polymers for SABIC Europe, have been elected to the board.
