Herbert Willerth assumes responsibility for Borealis’ Middle East and Asia activities

Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions, announces a reorganisation of its Executive Board. With the retirement of Henry Sperle as Executive Vice President Middle East & Asia on May 31, 2010, the organisational units previously reporting to him have been re-assigned to report to the Deputy CEO, Herbert Willerth, with immediate effect.

Herbert Willerth was born in Austria in 1950 and worked for the former PCD for almost 30 years before it was merged into Borealis. At the time of the merger Herbert Willerth was CEO of PCD. He was appointed Borealis Executive Vice President Operations & Procurement in 2000 and in addition Deputy CEO in 2008.

“Herbert Willerth is an integral part of Borealis and even more of the industry as such”, comments Mark Garrett, Borealis Chief Executive. “We are very happy that he will now support me and the Executive Board by not only ensuring a continuous strong focus on Operational Excellence in Europe but in addition supporting our growth projects over the next coming years in close collaboration with our partners ADNOC and Borouge.”
