“We are thrilled to welcome Julie to our Board of Directors,” said Charlie Shaver, chairman and CEO of Nouryon. “As a highly accomplished public company general counsel and corporate secretary, she brings extensive operational and corporate expertise, as well as significant board, governance, compensation and benefits and securities experience.”
“Julie’s broad corporate background and strong focus on shareholder engagement and strategic business relationships will be highly valuable to Nouryon as we continue to execute our growth plans in the coming years,” added Martin Sumner, managing director at The Carlyle Group and member of the Nouryon Board of Directors.
Aslaksen is the executive VP, general counsel and secretary at Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc., an S&P 500 company.
