Versum Materials, Inc., the planned Electronic Materials Division spin-off company from Air Products, has announced the proposed members of its Board of Directors, including the latter’s Chairman, President and CEO Seifi Ghasemi.
Versum Materials has around 1,900 employees across 14 manufacturing sites and six research and development facilities in the Americas and Asia, producing specialty gases and materials.
Formerly under the guise of the Materials Technologies’ Electronic Materials Division (EMD) of Air Products, the company has been gradually moving toward its spin-off from Air Products as intended in September 2016.
Terms of the spin-off and the new Versum Materials headquarters have previously been announced; now the company has revealed the personnel that will comprise its Board of Directors.
The Versum Board is expected to include:
“The Versum Board brings extensive experience in specialty materials companies, as well as technical, finance, private equity and international government affairs expertise,” said Novo.
“With their diverse backgrounds and range of leadership roles, these are high calibre individuals who, working with our experienced management team, can help Versum drive shareholder value and fulfil our goal of being the premier specialty materials provider to the semiconductor industry.”
