As part of this effort to make Pilot
more responsive to its customers, as
well as nimbler and more leading-edge,
the senior leadership team has been
reorganized to align against the new
strategy. Various leaders will take on
new roles based on the "structure
follows strategy" best practice. No jobs
have been eliminated in the initiative.
Key organizational changes include:
Strategy and change management
emphasis: Glynn Goertzen, president
of Pilot's Liquid Minerals Group
subsidiary and Pilot's vice president of
corporate development, will lead the
launch and execution of the Change
Management program along with
ensuring strategic alignment across all
functions. Bill Rohrer, who has been
named director of strategy and project
management, will support Goertzen.
People-first commitment: Catherine Ochterski has been named vice
president of human resources. In this
role, she will deepen the company's
focus on recruiting, training, retaining
and empowering employees.
Investment in manufacturing: Mike
Bizzarro has been named director of
manufacturing, in addition to his
current role as the manager of the
Middletown, Ohio, manufacturing
site. He will support plant managers
and promote the implementation of
best practices across Pilot's manufacturing facilities and continue to report
to Chris Leedy, vice president of
manufacturing and engineering.
Digitalization road map: David
Waizmann has assumed the role of
director of digitalization. He will oversee the development and execution of
a comprehensive digitalization road
map, to include exploring more robust
use of data analytics to strengthen
market focus.
Information technology to support
the transformation: Mark Moser has been
named director of information technology. He will oversee the upgrading of
Pilot's IT infrastructure companywide.

EVONIK CREATES NEW OIL
ADDITIVES BUSINESS LINE

Evonik is merging its specialty
methacrylate monomers - the
Applications Monomers Product
Line - with its current oil additives
business to become the new Oil Additives business line within the Resource
Efficiency segment.
Application Monomers were formerly part of the Methacrylate business
of Evonik, which is in the process of
being sold to U.S.-based private equity
firm Advent International.
"The integration just made sense
since Oil Additives is the specialist
for polyalkylmethacrylate (PAMA)
based additives for the lubricant
industry. The businesses jointly have a
substantially larger specialty monomer
production set-up," explained Martin
Trocha, head of the Application
Monomers Product Line.
By retaining the specialty methacrylate monomers business within Evonik
and integrating it into Oil Additives,
their similar business models with a
customer solution-centric approach
will allow them to focus on developing
and producing specialty and high-performing products and technologies.
"Combining both businesses will
lead to broader production capabilities
and a more comprehensive innovation
landscape," added Doris Schmidt, head
of the Oil Additives Business Line.
The integration is currently underway
and being executed in parallel to the sale
of Evonik's methacrylate business.
