Michelman's Wiseman Retires

August 5, 2011

Michelman recently announced the retirement of 30-year veteran P. Marshall Wiseman. Wiseman’s career began at Michelman in 1981 when John Michelman, Ph.D., hired him to be the very first salesman for the company’s line of water-based specialty wax emulsions. Until that time, Michelman had been involved in coatings for paper only.

Marshall proceeded to become a leading force behind the company’s North American growth, and was the company’s first salesman in Europe and Asia. “Marshall’s dedication and sacrifice has been great,” said Steve Shifman, president and CEO. “At one time, he relocated to China, where he lived for three years while the company established a foothold in the Asia Pacific region. Marshall initiated and has nurtured many of the relationships we currently enjoy with current customers around the world, as well as with many of the agents and distributors around the globe who represent Michelman.”

Marshall is now reportedly looking forward to spending more time with his family. Through his career, he has developed a love for traveling and intends to continue exploring the world.
