FMC Corporation announced the election of K'Lynne Johnson to the company's Board of Directors, effective September 23, 2013.  Johnson's election increases the board's size to 11 members.

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."

Prior to being named CEO and president of Elevance, Johnson was senior vice president of the global derivatives operating company within BP Innovene, one of the world's largest global petrochemical and refining companies. 

She has served in a variety of leadership and executive positions for more than 20 years at Amoco, BP Chemicals, Innovene and Elevance.  Johnson earned a bachelor's degree in Organizational Psychology and a master's in Organizational Behavior from Brigham Young University.

"I'm excited to join the board of one of the chemical industry's most respected, fastest growing companies," said Johnson.  "FMC's board and management team are executing an aggressive growth strategy, and I look forward to contributing and helping the company enhance long-term shareholder value."
