Trinseo
Reorganization Will Drive Efficiency

BERWYN, PA — Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced several changes to its executive leadership team.

“In a difficult economic environment, we continue to look for opportunities to drive greater focus on business process optimization and efficiency,” said Frank Bozich, President and CEO of Trinseo.

The previously announced search for a Senior Vice President, Commercial, has been suspended in favor of a flatter organization to streamline decision making so that the leaders of the global business units will report directly to the CEO.

As a result, effective May 1, 2020, Francesca Reverberi has been named Vice President, Engineered Materials and Synthetic Rubber; Nicolas Joly has been named Vice President, Plastics and Feedstocks; and Rüdiger Schmitz has been named Vice President, Latex Binders. Each of these appointments will be members of the company’s executive leadership team.
