PITTSBURGH—Arlanxeo has hired three people to complete its Tire and Specialty Rubbers sales team.
The firm said Octavio Alves will join Arlanxeo as its sales manager while both Joe Egan and Kathy-Ann Karder will serve as account managers.
"I'm thrilled to be leading a passionate commercial team to help provide the best service to our customers in the North American market," said Jay Capelli, the TSR unit's North American sales director.
Alves previously served as a technical specialist for Arlanxeo and prior to that with Lanxess A.G., the former parent company of Arlanxeo. He brings more than 12 years of research and development experience in physical chemistry.
Egan has worked for Lanxess since 2005, most recently as a senior account manager. Karder joined Arlanxeo in July and began her career as a Project Engineer at Polystar/Bayer—which was Lanxess' former parent company—holding several positions at Lanxess since.
