Calgon Carbon promotes Robert O’Brien to executive vice president, reorganizes management
Calgon Carbon Corp. announced it will undertake a management restructuring to better position itself to capitalize on significant growth opportunities that are anticipated to develop in the next five years.
Effective Jan. 1, 2012, Robert O’Brien will be promoted to the newly created position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. In this role, O’Brien will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations of Calgon Carbon worldwide and will continue to report to John Stanik, chairman, president, and CEO of Calgon Carbon. Three executives will be promoted to regional vice presidents, with responsibility for the operations of that region: James Sullivan in the Americas, Reinier Keijzer in Europe and Allan Singleton in Asia. They will report to Mr. O’Brien.
“This reorganization will unify our three regions under [O’Brien’s] leadership to provide greater responsiveness and functional efficiencies on a global basis. It will also permit me to focus more of my attention on developing Calgon Carbon’s long-term strategy and executing its short-term strategic initiatives,” said Stanik.
Calgon Carbon Corp. is headquartered in Pittsburgh and provides services and solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner.
