HOUSTON—James McGraw, managing director and CEO of the International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers, will retire from those positions next June 30, which is the end of the IISRP's current fiscal year.
McGraw joined the Houston-based association in 1997 and has been in the synthetic rubber industry since 1975, when he joined American Synthetic Rubber Corp.
“I have dedicated almost 40 years to this industry, and it has been an extremely rewarding experience,” McGraw said in a statement. “My association with the IISRP began in 1979 when I became a member of the Environmental Health Committee, providing me with the opportunity to become very close friends with a number of people around the world and to learn more about the regulatory issues and other cultures in our diverse membership. This paved the way for me to assume the IISRP leadership.”
McGraw will lead the recruitment process to find his replacement in conjunction with the IISRP's Finance Pension and Audit Committee. All inquiries should be sent to [email protected]
The IISRP has more than 50 corporate members from 20 countries that produce about 80 percent of the world's supply of synthetic rubber.
