Longtime chemicals and plastics executive Kim Ann Mink has joined the board of directors at leading compounder PolyOne Corp.
Mink became an independent director on the board on March 8. She also will serve on the Environmental, Health and Safety committee for Avon Lake, Ohio-based PolyOne.
Mink, 57, is chairman, president and CEO of publicly held Innophos Holdings Inc., a leading international producer of specialty phosphates based in Cranbury, N.J. She joined Innophos in 2015 from Dow Chemical Co., where she served most recently as business president of elastomers, electrical and telecommunications.
Prior to joining Dow in 2009, Mink spent more than 20 years at the Rohm and Haas Company — which Dow acquired — where she held numerous roles, including corporate vice president and general manager for the Ion Exchange Resins business.
Mink's "technical expertise, proven leadership and broad understanding of key end markets for PolyOne further strengthen our exceptional board,” President and CEO Robert Patterson said in a news release.
PolyOne ranks as North America's largest compounder and concentrates maker and as one of the region's largest resin distributors. The firm posted global sales of $3.3 billion in 2016.
