The ChemQuest Group has promoted Edye Fox Abrams to the role of vice president, business development and marketing. Fox Abrams’ new role expands on her previous responsibilities as vice president, business development at ChemQuest. She will have responsibility for the development and execution of the firm’s global marketing strategy, in addition to identifying and capturing opportunities for revenue and strategic growth and leading key business initiatives, client projects, and communications.
This includes fostering the firm’s base business in markets where it is well known — particularly coatings, adhesives, sealants, and other formulated industrial products — while also expanding opportunities for the firm’s burgeoning segments, such as additive manufacturing, composites, plastics, consumer products, cleaners, personal care, and fragrance. Fox Abrams has 25 years of experience in specialty chemicals and materials and has been a respected member of the ChemQuest executive leadership team since 2015. Prior to joining ChemQuest, she garnered significant industry expertise as the owner of Fox Industries Inc., a manufacturer of engineered products and systems to restore, protect, and repair concrete, steel, and wood substrates. She oversaw the successful sale of Fox Industries to Simpson Strong-Tie in 2011 and directly supported the integration following the acquisition. Today, Fox Abrams’ market expertise and insight is valued by numerous industry publications, trade organizations, and institutions, as well as supporting ChemQuest’s client base to generate growth and profitability.
“Coming from an entrepreneurship background, Edye can anticipate and understand the specific needs of our clients, because she understands how to build effective business relationships and strategies that translate to profitability. She has decades of experience as a business owner, commercial leader, marketer, and strategist, and that makes her a key asset on our management team,” said Daniel Murad, ChemQuest CEO.
Fox Abrams holds a B.A. in History and Communications from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Outside of her role at ChemQuest, she also serves as a member of the Jewish Professional Women Leadership Committee for the Associated Jewish Federation of Baltimore.
