DuPont names Chong as VP, GM Automotive OEM Coatings
Jun '08
DuPont has named BC Chong as vice president and general manager – DuPont Automotive OEM Coatings, succeeding Marty M. McQuade who plans to retire later this year following 31 years of service.

William F. Weber, currently global business director – Ethylene Copolymers in Packaging & Industrial Polymers, will succeed Chong as vice president and general manager – DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers. Both Chong's and Weber's positions take effect July 1.

In 2009, Chong, 46, will relocate to Shanghai – a move that will further strengthen the business' market position in Asia Pacific where a significant part of the automotive industry's future growth is expected to be generated.

DuPont also operates OEM Coatings business centers in the Europe and the Americas regions. Since joining DuPont in 1989 in Singapore, Chong has held a variety of business leadership roles in strategic planning, marketing and operations in Asia Pacific and the United States.

Weber, 48, has held a range of leadership roles, including marketing and operations, in multiple business units since joining the company in 1981.

DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere.

Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.
