Michelman recently announced the appointment of Jeffrey J. Prosinski to its board of directors. He is the executive vice president and chief financial officer at J.M. Huber Corp.

“It is a great honor to announce this appointment,” said Steve Shifman, executive chairman of the board. “Mr. Prosinski has decades of leadership experience in positions at companies directly related to Michelman’s core businesses. His time spent leading family-owned businesses like ours should prove invaluable. We believe his wisdom and insights will help us immensely as we continue working toward innovating a sustainable future.”

Prosinski has served as chief financial officer of Huber since 2006. Prior to joining Huber, he worked at PolyOne Corp., where he was the finance director for the North American Plastics organization from 1994-2003.

“Huber has remained family-owned since its founding in 1883, while Michelman has also been family-owned since its inception in 1949,” Prosinski said. “I look forward to sharing my ideas and observations regarding what it takes to successfully grow a private, family-owned business in a competitive, global economy. I’m excited to work alongside such a talented group.”
