Huntsman Corp. recently announced that Monte Edlund will succeed Stu Monteith as president of its Performance Products division (HPP), effective July 1. Most recently vice president for the Americas region in Huntsman’s Advanced Materials division, Edlund joined Huntsman with the acquisition of the Rexene Corp. and has been a senior leader with the company since 1997, when he was appointed vice president for Polymers. 

After more than 35 years in the chemical industry, 21 of them with Huntsman, Monteith chose to retire, as of August 31. He joined Huntsman in 1994 and served as the division’s vice president for global markets and business development before being named Performance Products division president in 2011.

“Performance Products division has experienced tremendous growth under Stu Monteith’s leadership, and we appreciate his many contributions to the corporation over these past 21 years,” said Peter Huntsman, president and CEO. “Having known and worked as closely with Monte Edlund as long as I have, I am confident that he will lead HPP to reach new heights.”
