Scott Sorensen joined Huntsman Packaging Corp. as executive VP and chief financial officer in 1997.
Prior to joining the Salt Lake City-based firm, he was CFO of Westinghouse Electric Corp.'s Power Generation Division. Prior to joining Westinghouse in 1996, he spent two years as director of business development and planning at Phelps Dodge Industries and more than four years as a management consultant with McKinsey & Co. in its Cleveland office, specializing in aerospace and automotive clients.
Sorensen received a bachelor's degree with high honors in accounting from the University of Utah, and later earned an MBA from Harvard Business School.
Huntsman Packaging began operations in 1992 with the acquisition of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Film Products Division. After several additional acquisitions, Huntsman ranks as one of North America's largest producers of film and flexible packaging products, with annual revenues of approximately $800 million. In the fall of 1997, the privately held Huntsman Packaging was separated from Huntsman Corp. in a tax-free reorganization.
Sorensen is a late speaker replacement at Executive Forum 2000 for Richard P. Durham, Huntsman Packaging's president and CEO.
