Geon Performance Solutions has a new chief commercial officer.
Materials veteran Larry Shaw is retiring from Westlake, Ohio-based Geon, with Wendy Herbst taking over CCO duties. Shaw had been with Geon and predecessor firm PolyOne Corp., now Avient Corp., since 2015, following a 28-year career with Dow Inc.
Herbst is joining Geon from Emerald Performance Materials of Vancouver, Wash., where she served as vice president and general manager of consumer specialties. Her previous industry experience includes roles at Eastman Chemical Co.
In a news release, Geon CEO Tracy Garrison said that Herbst "will continue to build on our growth strategies by leveraging her expertise in sales, marketing strategy, and business development."
