PolyOne Corporation, a premier provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, announced that it has hired Bradley C. Richardson as executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Mr. Richardson joins PolyOne with more than 30 years of experience in global management and financial leadership positions at petrochemical and manufacturing companies.

"We're thrilled to have Brad join PolyOne. He is a tested and well-respected CFO of extraordinary intellect and integrity," said Stephen D. Newlin, chairman, president and chief executive officer, PolyOne Corporation. 

"Brad has proven expertise in a broad range of strategic and functional disciplines, as well as exceptional financial analysis and leadership skills.  He is a multi-dimensional executive with global experience who will provide his analytical and balanced perspectives as a valued member of our leadership team."

For the past four years, Mr. Richardson served as executive vice president and CFO of Diebold, Incorporated, a $3-billion global provider of financial self-service and security solutions, where he was responsible for the global finance, information technology and legal departments. 

Prior to Diebold, he served as executive vice president and CFO of Modine Manufacturing Company.  Mr. Richardson began his career at Amoco Corporation, where he ascended in roles of increasing responsibility over a 21-year period, including leadership assignments throughout North America, as well as in Caracas, Venezuela and London, U.K.

Mr. Richardson earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and an MBA from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  He holds a certified public accountant certificate and currently serves on the Board of Directors for Brady Corporation and is chair of the audit committee.

"PolyOne has built its reputation on demanding excellence and consistently delivering performance," said Mr. Richardson.  "It's a privilege to join this specialty growth company, where I will contribute my skills and experiences in pursuit of PolyOne's goals and ongoing transformation."

As CFO for PolyOne, Mr. Richardson will have accountability for global treasury, financial reporting, planning and analysis, mergers and acquisitions, and internal controls, as well as investor relations. He succeeds Richard J. Diemer, Jr., who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. 

Commenting on the transition, Mr. Newlin said, "Rich's time with PolyOne was one of significant growth and M&A activity. We wish him well in his future endeavors and thank him for his service and dedication during his tenure as CFO at PolyOne."
