Effective July 1, 2007, Rohm and Haas Co. is making a number of organizational changes.

Patrice Barthelmes, group vice president for the Packaging and Building Materials Business is relinquishing his role as European region director to devote full time to the global operations and development of this $1.8 billion business. Barthelmes had taken on the additional oversight of the region in January 2007 as part of a broader, corporate-wide reorganization.

Gray Wirth, currently vice president of the Primary Materials Business, will relocate to Switzerland and take on the regional responsibilities for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Carol Eicher, currently general manager of Packaging and Building Materials in North America, is to become vice president and business director for Primary Materials. This business reported sales of nearly $2 billion in 2006.

Clive Grannum, who joined Rohm and Haas as global marketing director for Packaging and Building Materials in March 2007, will replace Eicher, and will join the company’s Leadership Council. Prior to joining Rohm and Haas in March of 2007, Grannum was a vice president of the ICI Group, leading the Uniqema North and Latin American businesses.
