THE WOODLANDS, US: Huntsman Corporation said that it has elected Scott Wright as president of Huntsman’s advanced materials division, effective 1 June. He will succeed James Huntsman.

Most recently Wright was VP for Huntsman’s advanced materials division in Europe, a position to which he was appointed in 2011. He joined Huntsman in 1999 with the acquisition of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI).

After 23 years with Huntsman, James Huntsman has elected to step down as president of advanced materials division to pursue personal interests. He joined the corporation in 1990 and held a series of increasingly responsible manufacturing and commercial roles.

“I am confident that Scott Wright will lead the business to new levels of success,”said Peter Huntsman, president and CEO, Huntsman.
