Meridian Adhesives Group recently announced the appointment of Brandon Willis to the position of president of its Electronics Division. Willis will work with Meridian leadership to advance the division’s technological reputation and further its focus of being a premier solution provider.
Meridian’s Electronics Division currently encompasses three companies: Epoxy Technology, Inc.; Epoxies, Etc.; and Epoxy Technology Europe. Michael Harrington, current president of Epoxies, Etc. and the division’s commercial leader, will transition to retirement as Willis moves into the new position.
Willis comes to Meridian from a 10-year tenure with Uniseal, Inc., which is owned by LG Chem. He most recently served as president and CEO of Uniseal while simultaneously holding the title of global senior leader for LG Chem’s Adhesives Business. Prior to this position, Willis worked as director of Marketing and New Business Development for Uniseal. He also spent 17 years in the high-performance coatings industry.
“I am incredibly excited to be joining the Meridian team,” said Willis. “I look forward to leveraging my experience with the extensive skills and history of Epoxies, Etc. and Epoxy Technology to continue building a global business that delivers value to our customers as well as our supply chain partners.”
Meridian reports that Harrington leaves a notable legacy at Epoxies, Etc. Having founded the company in 1987, he has been instrumental in its significant growth over the last 30 years and in the development of an expert team.
“After 30 years of leading Epoxies, Etc., it is time to step aside and let new leadership take over,” said Harrington. “I have been fortunate to have developed friendships with customers, suppliers and employees over the years. This is what I will miss most about retiring from Epoxies, Etc. Brandon Willis is the right person to lead Epoxies, Etc. and the entire Meridian Adhesives Electronics Division. Brandon understands the importance of excellent customer service and driving creative technical solutions for challenging applications.”
“I am extremely pleased to have Brandon joining our team,” said Daniel Pelton, CEO of Meridian Adhesives Group. “Brandon brings the right experience and leadership to take our electronics division to the next level of service for our clients and partners. Michael Harrington has been a solid operating consultant to myself and the broader Meridian Group, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
