Ashland Consolidates Leadership Roles

first_imgAshland Global Holdings Inc. has announced a consolidation of executive roles as part of its ongoing plan to drive profitable growth as a pure-play specialty chemicals company following the planned final separation of Valvoline Inc. this spring. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisementUnder the consolidation, two executive positions have been eliminated in order to improve execution of strategic priorities, streamline decision making and reflect Ashland’s leaner organization structure. The roles and responsibilities of Luis Fernandez-Moreno, senior vice president and president, Chemicals Group, and Greg Elliott, vice president and chief human resources and communications officer, have been consolidated under other members of Ashland’s executive leadership team. Fernandez-Moreno joined Ashland in November 2012. He played an important role in driving a turnaround of Ashland’s water technologies business, which was divested in 2014, and later led the chemicals group as Ashland took the final step in its decade-long transformation into a global specialty chemicals company. Elliott joined Ashland in November 2015 and helped drive human resources and change management as Ashland separated into two companies.As part of the realignment, most of Ashland’s commercial leadership team, as well as the chief technology officer, will now report directly to William Wulfsohn, Ashland chairman and CEO. “Luis and Greg are skilled leaders and we appreciate their many contributions to Ashland. This was a very difficult decision, as each has brought a great deal to the organization,” said Wulfsohn. “At the same time, we believe this consolidation of roles will forge a stronger, more direct connection to the business and better position our teams to execute against Ashland’s key priorities this year.”AdvertisementHe continued, “As we outlined in our first-quarter earnings call with investors in late January, our entire organization is excited about Ashland’s ‘pivot’ to being a leading premier specialty chemicals company. Our first-quarter results represented a solid start to fiscal 2017 and we intend to build on that momentum as we move through the year and deliver against our fiscal 2017 plan.”last_img read more

LNG bunkering workshop held at Piraeus Port

first_imgPoseidon Med informed that its technical workshop on LNG bunkering at the Piraeus Port was held at the Piraeus Port Authority premises. Partners from Greece and Italy, including shipping companies, port authorities, designers and supply chain stakeholders gathered to discuss on technology, operational and regulatory issues for LNG bunkering operations in port, Poseidon Med said in a statement.The scope of the workshop has been to undertake an effective and efficient risk assessment and operability study of the proposed site and facilities which will enable the Port of Piraeus to undertake LNG bunkering operations, according to the statement.An onsite survey organised in the main passenger Piraeus port and at the car terminal at Ikonio was the initiating point for this study. During the survey, the feasible types of bunkering operations and appropriate sites within the port were discussed, the statement said.Throughout the workshop, critical points around the issue of LNG bunkering potential in Piraeus were discussed.Matters like safety zones, simultaneous operations, size and numbers of bunkering barges, capability for re-loading LNG cargo locally or at remote location, impact of LNG bunker barge traffic in the Port Authority traffic operations, preliminary evaluation of bunkering systems for service at port including initial operations using LNG trucks and Port/ bunker barge, operating crew competence standards, were also discussed.The open group discussions led to the identification of a number of operational matters and resultant operating consequences, together with safeguards/mitigating measures and recommendations to be addressed by the project. A list of areas for further action and assessment was developed and this is to be further detailed by the project partners, Poseidon Med said.[mappress mapid=”17452″]last_img read more

The big squeeze

Valleyfield secures funding

Heideveld matric pupil gets a fairytale ending

first_imgUtica van Wyk, 17, and her partner, Abdul Malik Retief, 17, pose for photographer, Zaid Samuels, on her matric ball night. Thanks to the generosity of family and friends – and even a stranger – a Heideveld Grade 12 pupil experienced her dream matric ball just four days after she and her family lost everything in a fire that destroyed their wendy house.Utica van Wyk, 17, a pupil at Garlandale High School, was given a fairytale send-off to her matric ball on Tuesday September 27. Four days before, on Friday September 23, she and her family – her mother Karen van Wyk, and brother Lezario, 8 – had to flee from their burning wendy house in Delft, and were left with only the clothes on their backs.Ms Van Wyk, a single parent, worked hard to make sure her daughter experienced a memorable matric farewell. Since it was the last weekend before the big day, and she was planning to shop and pay for services, Ms Van Wyk withdrew all the money she saved up. Unfortunately, the money, along with their clothes, school books, school uniforms and furniture, were destroyed.“It was just after 11pm, and we heard someone shout that it was burning. We woke up, and when we opened our door, the flames came rushing in. We all just ran outside, and didn’t think to take anything with us. I cried when I realised all my school books burnt in the process. I am blessed, in that my friends helped me out a lot, by making photocopies of our work, for me. My school also helped, and my mother bought me new books as well,” Utica said.Luckily, Utica’s dress was still with the dressmaker, and was not destroyed. The family moved from Delft to Heideveld that same weekend, and now share Ms Van Wyk’s mother’s wendy house.Ms Van Wyk said she was determined to give her daughter the matric ball she deserved.“I knew I would make it, because I have very supportive colleagues, especially my manager at Alplas. My family and fiancé, Gavin Wrenn, also helped me in a big way. We were able to provide snacks and drinks for our guests, who came to greet Utica at home before she went to the matric ball. I would just like to thank everybody who helped us out,” Ms Van Wyk said.And while Utica had her hair done, the owner of the hair salon told another client what had happened to Utica and her family. It touched the woman so much, that she gave Utica R300 towards her hairdressing bill. Utica did not get the woman’s name, but also expressed her sincere gratitude for this stranger’s kindness.last_img read more
