NORWALK, CT -- Arch Chemicals Inc. has announced the election of two Executive Vice Presidents to its senior leadership team, Joe Shaulson and Luis Fernandez-Moreno. The two assumed their new roles on Sept. 1, 2010. Fernandez-Moreno joins Arch from The Dow Chemical Co. Both Shaulson and Fernandez-Moreno will report to Michael E. Campbell, Arch Chemicals' Chairman, President and CEO.

Shaulson, who previously served as Senior Vice President, Wood Protection and Personal Care Ingredients, will have responsibility as Executive Vice President for the global operations of Arch's Industrial Biocides, Personal Care Ingredients and Performance Products businesses. He joined Arch in 2008 as Vice President, Strategic Development, and he has played a key role in sharpening Arch's focus on its biocides business portfolio. He led the team that divested the non-biocides Industrial Coatings business earlier this year to The Sherwin-Williams Co.

As Executive Vice President, Fernandez-Moreno is responsible for the global operations of the company's HTH Water Products and Wood Protection businesses. Fernandez-Moreno comes to Arch from The Dow Chemical Co., where he was Vice President of Dow Coating Materials. He assumed that role upon Dow's acquisition of Rohm and Haas in April 2009. Prior to that, he was the Business Group Vice President of the Rohm and Haas Paint and Coatings Materials division.

Headquartered in Norwalk, CT, Arch Chemicals Inc. is a global biocides company with annual sales of over $1 billion.
