When talking with Magen Buterbaugh about her new position as president and CEO at Greene Tweed & Co., a variety of themes come through.
There's her passion for chemicals and materials, a background of cross-functional leadership developed in a career that has seen her work for both a startup and a multibillion-dollar corporate giant.
And her drive to make sure Greene Tweed continues to live its mission of being a market-leading innovator that is known for solving the world's — and its customers' — biggest challenges.
That's not even mentioning that she is the first female CEO in the more than 150-plus-year history of the Lansdale, Pa.-based producer of seals, high-end elastomers, engineered components, composites and thermoplastics for such market sectors as aerospace/defense, energy, semiconductor, industrial, life sciences and chemical processing.
"I am a relentless pursuer of results. I think that I can bring that to Greene Tweed," she told Rubber News in a wide-ranging interview less than two months into her new job. "I think they've done a great job of growing throughout its history. I think they need that next level of growth that I think will require more focused execution. I feel that's a piece I can bring here for sure."
