PolyOne Corp. has hired a new senior vice president and president of its Performance Products and Solutions business.

The company said Michael A. Garratt will replace Robert M. Rosenau, who is retiring. A news release did not include the official date of the leadership transition.

Garratt, who has 20 years of experience in specialty polymers, most recently served as president at Marmon Utility, a Berkshire Hathaway company. He also has worked with Dow Chemical Co., DuPont Dow Elastomers and Excel Polymers. He has a bachelor's degree in applied chemistry from McMaster University and an MBA from the University of Toronto.

"The addition of Michael to our executive team further strengthens our company and brings even more global expertise to drive our strategy and growth objectives," Robert M. Patterson, executive vice president and chief operating officer, said in the news release.

Avon Lake, Ohio-based PolyOne had $2.9 billion in 2012 sales and reported strong results in the second quarter of 2013.
