FAIRLAWN, Ohio (Aug. 27, 2008) — Former Goodyear executive Joseph Gingo, who now serves as chairman and CEO of A. Schulman Inc., has joined the board of directors of Veyance Technologies Inc.
Tim Toppen, Veyance president and CEO, said Gingo's “broad experience includes leading our business 10 years ago when we were a division” of Goodyear.
The election of Gingo increases the size of Veyance's governing board to seven.
Veyance was formed a year ago when Goodyear divested its Engineered Products division.
Gingo joined A. Schulman in December after a 41-year career at Goodyear that included serving as executive vice president, quality systems and chief technical officer.
