LyondellBasell names James Guilfoyle Executive Vice President, Advanced Polymer Solutions and Global Supply Chain

August 10/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- LyondellBasell, one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies in the world, has announced it has named James (Jim) Guilfoyle executive vice president, Advanced Polymer Solutions and Global Supply Chain, as per the company's press release.

In this capacity, Guilfoyle will continue to report to Chief Executive Officer Bob Patel.

"Jim has been a key player in our company's success and has provided outstanding leadership for our Intermediates and Derivatives segment," Patel said. "As our company enters its next phase, with a robust slate of growth opportunities before us, I am confident Jim will provide the same strong leadership as we establish our new Advanced Polymer Solutions platform."

LyondellBasell's Advanced Polymer Solutions reporting segment will be created following the company's completion of the A. Schulman, Inc. acquisition. The new segment will include LyondellBasell's existing polypropylene compounding business, the assets acquired from A. Schulman, as well as the company's existing Polybutene-1 and Catalloy businesses. To date, LyondellBasell's acquisition of A. Schulman has been approved by regulators in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, China, the European Commission, Russia, Serbia and Turkey.

Guilfoyle has spent his career at LyondellBasell and its predecessor companies, starting in 1993 as a chemical engineer in La Porte, Texas before attaining several managerial and technical positions within the company. Most recently, Guilfoyle served as the company's senior vice president for Global Intermediates and Derivatives and Global Supply Chain.

As MRC reported previously, in August 2016, LyondellBasell made the final investment decision to build a high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant on the US Gulf Coast. The plant will have an annual capacity of 1.1 billion pounds (500,000 metric tons) and will be the first commercial plant to employ LyondellBasell's new proprietary Hyperzone PE technology. The start-up of the new plant is scheduled for 2019.

LyondellBasell is one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies in the world. Driven by its 13,000 employees around the globe, LyondellBasell produces materials and products that are key to advancing solutions to modern challenges like enhancing food safety through lightweight and flexible packaging, protecting the purity of water supplies through stronger and more versatile pipes, and improving the safety, comfort and fuel efficiency of many of the cars and trucks on the road.
