DICKSON, Tenn.—Zochem L.L.C., with zinc oxide manufacturing plants in Canada and the U.S., has promoted Seth Johnson to global director of sales and marketing.
Johnson's new post, effective April 27, comes after a decade in regional sales positions in the Southeast U.S. He replaces Ed Smith, who retired in 2022.
"Seth's leadership and deep knowledge of our industry have been invaluable to Zochem," said Mohit Sharma, president and CEO of Zochem. "We're thrilled to have him take on this new role, where he can continue to drive our growth and success."
Sharma said Johnson worked closely with Smith, where he led the company's export sales—collaborating with multinationals from five continents—for five years. This experience should make the transition much easier for Johnson, Sharma said.
Johnson, who joined Zochem in 2016, saw particular success in expanding Zochem's Asian and European markets.
"I'm excited about this new opportunity and to continue working toward Zochem's success," Johnson said. "I'm honored to work with Zochem's 'Dream Team' and look forward to a bright future."
