WASHINGTON (April 18, 2022) — During last week’s American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) Steering Committee Meeting, industry leaders from Huntsman Corporation and BASF were installed to serve as Chair and Vice Chair, respectively.

Pavneet Mumick, Ph.D., was elected Chair of CPI’s Steering Committee; he will serve in this position for a two-year term (2022-2024), taking over the role from Julia Rubino (2020-2022) of Covestro LLC, whose steady leadership was instrumental during these challenging past two years.

Dr. Mumick currently serves as Global Vice President of Technology and Innovation for the Polyurethanes Division at Huntsman, where he is responsible for growth through new product development. He is a member of the Polyurethanes global leadership team and chairs the Division’s Global Strategic Marketing Council.

Tobias Haber, Ph.D., has been elected Vice Chair (2022-2024) of CPI’s Steering Committee. Dr. Haber is the Vice President for BASF Construction, Performance Materials in North America and a member of the BASF Canada Executive Team. In this role, Dr. Haber oversees BASF’s Performance Materials Construction Segment, with responsibility for the business and teams in Canada, U.S., and Mexico.

“Our new Steering Committee leadership exemplifies the dedication, expertise and vision required to help with the continued success of CPI’s mission of providing effective advocacy, outreach, and robust safety education and product stewardship programs,” said Lee Salamone, Senior Director, CPI. “I look forward to working with Pavneet and Tobias on advancing the industry’s strategic direction.”
