AVON, Ohio—John Wilson assumed the role of president of Maroon Group's combined U.S. Chemicals/Cadence Chemicals business on July 1.
In this position, he will help the firm focus on managing its combined customer base, while working closely with partner suppliers.
Carol Piccaro, former U.S. Chemicals president, moved into a senior executive role. She will work closely with Wilson and help to direct the transition for the team and the business, according to Maroon Group.
"Carol has been the major driver of U.S. Chemicals for many years and will support John to ensure a seamless transition," Mark Reichard, Maroon Group's president and CEO, said in a statement. "We're indebted for her commitment and dedication over the last 14 months as part of Maroon Group."
Founded in 2004, Cadence supplied specialty intermediates for the CASE, chemical processing, water treatment and associated industries. This, Maroon Group noted at the time of the acquisition, complemented its existing offerings.
U.S. Chemicals was founded in 1960. It supplies specialty intermediates to the CASE, lubricants, plastics and associated industries.
An Avon-based specialty chemical distributor, Maroon Group operates several specialty chemical companies dedicated to specific markets and geographies. These include U.S. Chemicals, Cadence Chemical, D.B. Becker, Maroon, Lincoln Fine Ingredients, CNX Distribution, Addipel and Polyram USA.
