U.S. based Distributor reduces Number of Board Members

Global chemicals and ingredients distributor Univar Solutions, Inc. (Downers Grove, IL – United States) announced yesterday that it has appointed Christopher D. Pappas as independent Chairman of its Board of Directors. He will also chair the Governance and Corporate Responsibility Committee.


Pappas, who joined Univar Solution’s board in 2015 and has served as the Company’s Independent Lead Director since May last year, succeeds Stephen D. Newlin who will continue to serve on the Board.


As a result of William S. Stavropoulos and Edward J. Mooney not standing for re-election at this year’s annual meeting due to the company’s previously-announced retirement policy, the size of the board has been reduced from twelve to ten directors.
