Nov '14
NOVA Chemicals, a leading producer of chemicals for global customers who produce consumer, industrial and packaging products, has appointed Naushad Jamani as the senior vice president for Olefins and Feedstock, effective from January 1, 2015.

Mr. Jamani will become a member of the NOVA Chemicals Management Board. He has nearly 35 years of experience at NOVA Chemicals with roles in various engineering and commercial segments of the business. He is currently responsible for the acquisition of all feedstock for the Corunna, Ontario facility as well as sales and marketing of all NOVA Chemicals olefins products.

Over his career, Mr. Jamani has been centrally involved in the transformation of the Corunna cracker from its original 100 percent naphtha feedstock slate into its current ability to utilize up to 100 percent natural gas liquid and the interim steps along the way.

Khadem Abdulla Al Qubaisi, NOVA Chemicals chairman and IPIC managing director said, “The Board of Directors is pleased to be able to continue the strong leadership that NOVA Chemicals has shown in feedstocks with the appointment of Mr. Jamani.”

NOVA Chemicals Acting CEO, SVP and CFO, Todd Karran said, “Mr. Jamani’s reputation with colleagues and business partners makes him an excellent choice to lead our Olefins and feedstock business.”

“I am confident that under Mr. Jamani’s direction, NOVA Chemicals will continue to be an industry leader - acquiring new and incremental feedstock sources for our sites,” he added.

Mr. Jamani will replace Grant Thomson, who will be retiring at the end of the year.

NOVA Chemicals, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a wholly owned subsidiary of International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. (GK)
