Avient Corp. in Avon Lake, Ohio, has a new member of its leadership team: Jamie A. Beggs.
Avient is a materials company that used to be known as PolyOne Corp. The company's name change took place in July alongside the completion of a large acquisition.
Beggs succeeds Bradley C. Richardson, who the company in a news release said will retire later this year. Beggs will serve as senior vice president and chief financial officer for Avient. She brings 20 years of experience in financial leadership, most recently as CFO for Hunt Consolidated Inc.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jamie to our executive leadership team, as we accelerate our specialty growth strategy during this new era as Avient," chairman, president and CEO Robert M. Patterson said in the release. "With her prior CFO experience, industry expertise and inspirational leadership, I look forward to partnering with her as our company delivers on the value creation opportunities before us."
Avient had about $4 billion in pro forma revenues in 2019 and employs about 9,100 people.
