Our client is a major chemical producer that is expanding its polyolefins business worldwide.   They are seeking an experienced engineer to develop technology and commercial strategies to globalize their polyolefins business.   This is a ground floor opportunity to spearhead the growth of a worldwide polyolefins portfolio.   You will support polyolefins commercial activities and provide input into site selection for new plant construction and JV’s.   Your technical experience in polyethylene should allow you to make sound decisions in building the technology strategy and catalyst strategies for production plants.   Increased polyolefin production will create the need for strategies to penetrate new markets with an initial emphasis on Asia and Europe.  This will include building market entry plans for individual markets and selecting polyethylene grades to target to certain markets.   This position reports to a General Manager whom we placed with the company several years ago.  Long term growth potential for this role could lead into a Commercial Director or Product Director role and eventually into the GM Polyolefins role.
