President, Swan Chemical Inc, the Americas
I have been President of Swan Chemical Inc. (SCI) since 1997. Swan Chemical Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Thomas Swan & Company Ltd, with headquarters in Lyndhurst, New Jersey and responsibility for activities in the Americas.
I head up key Swan activities in the rubber, coatings, printing ink, personal care and other performance chemical sectors in the region, as well as advanced applications for nanomaterial technologies. Our carbon nanotubes business has now achieved commercial scale production to meet growing demand in the USA. We have been working with US industry and governmental agencies and contractors on a range of groundbreaking nanomaterial development projects in advanced composites.
I have a long history in the US specialty chemical industry, and in 2006 was awarded the prestigious ‘Golden C' Award by The Commercial Development and Marketing Association (CDMA) of Philadelphia as recognition of my success in building US market share for Swan products – a success which continues today and into the future as Swan continues to strengthen across the Americas.
