HOUSTON (ICIS)--A Schulman has appointed Bernard Rzepka to the newly created position of chief operating officer (COO), effective immediately, the US-based supplier of plastic compounds and resins said on Thursday.

Rzepka was previously Schulman president and general manager for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Heinrich Lingnau will succeed Rzepka in that role, the company said.

A Schulman also announced an agreement with CEO Joseph Gingo under which Schulman’s board will have an option to extend Gingo’s contract for up to two years in the event of “a transformational acquisition in the specialty chemical space”, such as its proposed acquisition of Ferro.
