The Dow Chemical Co. recently announced that Deborah Borg, vice president of the Human Resource Partner Organization, has been named president of Dow USA. In this role, she will continue to be based in Midland, Mich., and will report to Joe Harlan, chief commercial officer and vice chairman, Market Businesses.

Borg will be responsible for coordinating Dow’s activities across the U.S. She will develop and oversee a strategy for Dow USA, coordinating closely with the businesses, functions and operations to drive results. In addition, Borg will play an instrumental role in representing Dow’s interests to key stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, joint venture partners, key government organizations, and local communities.

“As we have said many times, our efforts are concentrated in select markets where we can be narrowly, but more deeply focused, and this requires a local approach to running our global businesses,” Harlan said. “Deborah has been a key partner with our businesses throughout her career with Dow. In addition, she has played an invaluable role in the development and implementation of the company’s corporate strategy. Her experiences will help set a clear path forward for our growth objectives in the U.S.”
