Huntsman names new president for textile effects division

THE WOODLANDS, US: Huntsman Corporation has named Rohit Aggarwal as its new president for textile effects division, effective 31 July.

Most recently Aggarwal was Huntsman’s vice president and managing director of Indian Subcontinent, a position he has held since July 1, 2015. He joined Huntsman in 2005 and has held various positions within the corporation’s advanced materials and textile effects divisions.  In 2013 he left Huntsman to join Louis Dreyfus Commodities BV as CEO of Asia Region, a position he held until his return in 2015.

Aggarwal will succeed Paul Hulme, who will retire after 17 years with Huntsman. Hulme joined Huntsman in 1999 with the acquisition of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), where he spent the first 15 years of his career.  He subsequently held a variety of senior roles throughout Huntsman.

“I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Paul for his dedicated service to Huntsman for more than three decades and I am very pleased that Rohit Aggarwal has accepted the lead role in our textile effects division.  I am confident that, under his direction, the business will prosper and thrive,” said Peter Huntsman, president and CEO of Huntsman.
