Johnson is CEO and President of Elevance Renewable Sciences, Inc., a Chicago-based global specialty chemicals company that transforms natural oils into high-performance, cost-effective and eco-friendly alternatives to petrochemicals. 

Elevance products and technologies are used in personal care products, detergents and cleaners, lubricants and additives, engineered polymers and other specialty chemicals markets.

"We are pleased to welcome K'Lynne to the FMC board," said Pierre Brondeau, FMC president, CEO and Chairman.  "She has broad industry experience at both large and small companies, and her extensive knowledge of markets that are served by renewable, bio-based materials will complement many of our businesses."
