Heeschen had his last day on the companys board on Wednesday, when new investors took over at LyondellBasell, which emerged from bankruptcy in late April. The company, which operates 59 manufacturing facilities in 18 countries, filed for Chapter 11 protection in January 2009. Its bankruptcy plan cuts the companys funded debt to about $5 billion from $24 billion.
