Infineum Revamps Senior Leadership


Additives maker Infineum will restructure its corporate leadership team effective April 1, moving newly appointed sales and supply executive vice president Trevor Russell to Singapore.

Infineums sales and supply divisions will come together, headed by Russell, previously vice president for sales and marketing. Russells relocation to Singapore reflects the growing importance of the Asia Pacific region for Infineum.

Chris Locke, who previously managed Infineums crankcase lubricants business, will become executive vice president for the newly formed marketing and technology division.

Vice President of Supply Sara Lefcourt and Vice President of Technology Mark Struglinski will retire at the end of March.

Philippe Creteur will remain chief financial officer and executive vice president for business services, while Ross Baglin will continue as executive vice president for human resources.

Infineums four executive vice presidents will work alongside Chief Executive Officer Xavier le Mintier as the new corporate leadership team.

Through this restructuring, we have put in place an organization that is more agile and flexible, allowing us to increase our speed to market with new innovations whilst maintaining the operational and supply excellence our customers value, said le Mintier. I am particularly pleased to announcement the movement of an EVP position to Asia, reflecting both the importance of this region and Infineums commitment to it.

Set up in 1999, Infineum, headquartered in Milton Hill, U.K., is a joint venture between ExxonMobil and Shell.
