Ms. McAlindon earned a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Western Ontario, Canada.

“It’s an honor to be chosen to lead this important new business at PolyOne,” said Ms. McAlindon.  “I’m excited to collaborate with our newest associates and the entire PolyOne team to collectively innovate, execute and drive specialty value for our customers.  Our DSS solutions portfolio has tremendous potential to expand and globalize, and I’m eager to turn that potential into reality.”
