BATON ROUGE, La.—East West Copolymer L.L.C. has named Paula Moreau senior vice president and chief financial officer.
The firm said Moreau brings 25 years of manufacturing experience with 10 years in senior leadership roles, including oversight of accounting, treasury and information systems. She returns to the same synthetic rubber facility in Baton Rouge she spent more than 18 years with under its former owners—DSM Copolymer and Lion Copolymer.
Moreau was part of the management team that restarted a paper mill operation in 2010 and successfully divested the business in 2015.
“Joining East West Copolymer is an honor,” she said in a statement. “The drive and ambition of the management team is energetic and forward looking. I'm impressed with the actions taken and the progress that's been made over the last three years. I look forward to coming home to the Baton Rouge facility and being part of the next phase in the growth, development and success of the company.”
