A Schulman appoints current VP as its new chief legal officer

AKRON, US: A Schulman Inc has appointed Andrean Horton currently VP, secretary and assistant general counsel, responsible for global legal operations to executive VP and chief legal officer, effective September 1, 2016.

Horton (42), succeeds David Minc, who will retire from A Schulman at the end of fiscal 2016 in August. The plan calls for Minc to serve as an attorney and consultant to the company in connection with the Lucent litigation and other matters.

Horton joined A Schulman in 2010 as its senior corporate counsel, Americas, responsible for the US, Canada and Latin America. In her roles with A Schulman, she has provided counsel on a wide range of legal issues, including intellectual property, real estate, contracts, labour and employment, compliance and litigation. Prior to joining A Schulman, Horton was general counsel and corporate secretary of The Bartech Group Inc, and held various legal roles at YRC Worldwide Inc. She is a member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the State Bar of Ohio and the State Bar of Michigan.

"Andrean's extensive legal background, coupled with her sound business judgment, makes her the ideal candidate for this position as we continue to transform A Schulman into a premier speciality chemical organization," said Joseph Gingo, chairman, president and CEO. "The promotion of Andrean is further evidence of our thoughtful approach to succession planning. I have no doubt she will have continued success in this role."

Minc (67) has served as the company's VP and chief legal officer since 2008. Prior to joining A Schulman, he was General Counsel and Secretary for Flexsys America LP, and held senior legal positions with BFGoodrich and Michelin/Uniroyal-Goodrich.

"On behalf of board and the entire organization, I want to thank Minc for his many valuable contributions to the restructuring, growth and evolution of A Schulman. His dedicated commitment and sound counsel has helped make A Schulman the company it is today," Gingo said. "His willingness to remain available to us as an attorney and consultant is a reflection of both his character and his dedication to the company. We wish him and his family all the very best going forward."
