Owens Corning has named two new executives to lead its building materials and composites divisions, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Chuck Dana has been appointed group president, building materials, and Arnaud Genis has been appointed group president, composites, succeeding Dana. These changes are effective immediately.
Karel Czanderna, currently the group president of the building materials group, has resigned and will leave the company following a transition period.
Dana, 55, joined Owens Corning in 1996. He has led the company’s global composites business since 2002, and completed the acquisition of the Saint-Gobain reinforcements and composite fabrics business in 2007.
Genis, 46, comes to the role of composites group president from his previous position of VP and managing director, composites Europe. Genis has been in his current role since the acquisition of the Saint-Gobain reinforcements and composite fabrics business in 2007. Prior to the acquisition, he was president of the global reinforcements and textile solutions business.
