LyondellBasell today announced it has named James (Jim) Guilfoyle executive vice president, Advanced Polymer Solutions and Global Supply Chain. In this capacity, Guilfoyle will continue to report to Chief Executive Officer Bob Patel.

"Jim has been a key player in our company's success and has provided outstanding leadership for our Intermediates and Derivatives segment," Patel said.

Schulman has been approved by regulators in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, China, the European Commission, Russia, Serbia and Turkey.

Guilfoyle has spent his career at LyondellBasell and its predecessor companies, starting in 1993 as a chemical engineer in La Porte, Texas before attaining several managerial and technical positions within the company. Most recently, Guilfoyle served as the company's senior vice president for Global Intermediates and Derivatives and Global Supply Chain.
