Tri-Tex, a leading producer of adhesives, sealants, surfactants and textile and paper chemicals headquartered in Canada, has announced that Richard Hooper has been hired as the chief executive officer of the company. Hooper assumes the role from Natalie Laham, who will remain with the company as a minority shareholder and member of the Board of Directors.

Hooper is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of specialty chemical industry experience having most recently served as CEO of SummitReheis, a privately-held global specialty chemical company.

Aaron Davenport, managing director of SK Capital and chairman of Tri-Tex said, “We are thrilled to welcome Richard as the new CEO of Tri-Tex. We believe he has the requisite skills and experience to build upon the foundation and legacy established by the Laham family by continuing to grow the company both organically and through acquisitions. We also want to thank Natalie for her leadership and ongoing commitment to the company.”

Prior to leading SummitReheis in its successful growth and eventual sale to Elementis PLC in March 2017, Hooper served as president and CEO of ICL Industrial Products, North America, where he had responsibility for a $1 billion portfolio with 600 employees in six locations. He has also held senior leadership positions at Supresta and Chemtura, after beginning his career at Uniroyal Chemical where he held various positions in engineering, production and general management.

Hooper added, “I’m excited to become a member of the SK Capital team and lead Tri-Tex’s continued growth and development. I look forward to working with our talented workforce to drive our strategy, better serve our customers and enhance the presence of our brand across our key end markets.”

Tri-Tex is a portfolio company of SK Capital. The private investment firm partnered with Tri-Tex management to recapitalise the company in June 2017. (GK)
