BEACHWOOD, Ohio—Kevin McMullen will step down as chairman, CEO and president of Omnova Solutions Inc. effective Dec. 1.
The company will split the roles of chairman and CEO/president with both appointments also effective Dec. 1. Anne Noonan will become Omnova's new president/CEO, and will assume McMullen's seat on the board, while William Seelback will become Omnova's independent, non-executive chairman.
The firm said McMullen is leaving to “pursue other interests” after serving as Omnova's top executive for more than 16 years.
“Kevin is a high-integrity leader with strong strategic and business acumen. We are thankful for Kevin's many years of leadership and his dedicated service to Omnova, both as CEO and as chairman,” Michael Merriman, presiding director of the Omnova board, said in a statement.
