DuPont's BoD appoints CEO Ellen Kullman Chair
Nov '09
DuPont's board of directors has elected DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman Chair, effective December 31. Chad Holliday will retire from the board after 11 years as its Chairman.

As previously announced in September 2008, Ellen became CEO effective January 1 after Chad served as DuPont's CEO for 10 years. Chad continued as Chair of the Board for a brief transition until Ellen's expected succession as Chair.

“I am honored to have been selected Chair by the board of directors,” Ellen said. “DuPont is well-positioned for our next phase of delivering growth. We have strong market positions and global channels to bring our culture of scientific inquiry, innovation and strong customer focus to connect our technologies directly with the needs of the global marketplace.”

“Ellen's innate leadership skills, acute market focus and strong track record were the basis for the board's decision that she is the right person as its Chair. I am confident Ellen will be an outstanding Chair and CEO,” Chad said. “For over 35 years, I have had the unique privilege of being part of DuPont. I look forward to watching in the years ahead, under Ellen's leadership, as DuPont continues to address the world's need for science-based solutions.”
