Elkem appoints Larry Zhang to lead silicones division

Larry Zhang has been appointed as senior vice president for Norwegian personal care materials supplier Elkem’s silicones division with immediate effect.

Zhang, who is based in Shanghai, comes from the position as the vice president for operations in Elkem’s silicones division and director of the Asia-Pacific region.

Elkem’s silicones division has more than 4400 employees, 14 multi-functional manufacturing sites and 13 research and innovation centres around the globe.

It offers a full range of silicone solutions for diverse specialty markets, and in 2021 delivered revenues of NOK 17.4 billion (US$1.754 billion).

“Elkem pursues a strategy of growth through operational excellence and increased specialisation, and this will continue in the Silicones division under Larry’s strong leadership,” said chief executive Helge Aasen.

“Silicones will also continue to develop and grow both in China and the rest of the world, supported by megatrends such as the green transition and the rise of middle class worldwide,” he added.

“I know Larry as a committed business leader and I very much look forward to having him as a member of Elkem’s corporate management team...(which now) represents five nationalities from three continents.”
