Fitterling, executive vice president, with oversight of Feedstocks, Performance Plastics, Asia and Latin America.

“And in both Packaging and Elastomers…we will continue to drive forward on the strength of both businesses’ strong, complementary customer-centric innovation and operational excellence culture,” said Andrew N. Liveris, Dow’s chairman and CEO.

He added: “With less structure at the top of the company and more deployment and implementation in the markets, this is the optimal structure for the next phase of our strategy.”
