ANGUS Chemical Company | Leadership
Mark A. Henning
President & CEO Mark A. Henning leads the strategic growth of ANGUS Chemical Company, a global specialty and fine chemical company. Henning has held the position of President and CEO of ANGUS Chemical Company from 2001 to 2009, and again from 2014 to present. Previously, Henning worked for the Dow Chemical Company for over 31 years. Most recently, Henning led the divestiture of ANGUS, from wholly owned subsidiary of Dow, to Golden Gate Capital, in a deal that closed February 2, 2015. He began his career at Dow as an engineer and project manager, followed by roles in manufacturing, supply chain, SAP implementation and global business leadership across a broad portfolio of products and technologies. During his recent leadership of Dow Microbial Control, he helped the business achieve record levels of profitable growth and set new standards for environmental engagement, launching the first definition of sustainability for the microbial control sector. Additionally, Henning has chaired the Board of Directors for both ChemiHaas and Viance from 2009-2014. He also founded and chaired the Cefic (the European Chemical Industry Council) Sector Group: Microbial Control Executive Council from 2011-2014, and serves as a Dean's Advisory Board member for the University of Wisconsin College of Engineering, and is a member of the University of Wisconsin Electrical & Computer Engineering visiting advisory board. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelor's degree in electrical and computer engineering, and completed graduate programs at Indiana University Bloomington Kelley School of Business, Oxford University Said Business School and University of California Berkeley Center for Executive Education.
"In China, there is going to be a slowdown in housing starts and commercial builds, but we still see a strong uplift for higher quality paint," says Mark Henning, president and CEO of ANGUS Chemical (Buffalo Grove, IL).
ANGUS is Dow's former nitroalkanes business and a major ingredients supplier to the coatings industry. As the Chinese economy shifts to a more consumerdriven market, the importance of quality will become more pronounced. "Even in a slowergrowth economy, we are seeing the consumerdriven portion becoming much larger," Henning says. "For those materials that are more specialty … if there is a supplydemand imbalance, when demand goes up prices will firm," Henning says. Paint companies are expecting downward pressure on prices for commodity ingredients, but prices for other ingredients may increase, he adds. "Even with stable pricing, paint makers know how volatile that market can be," Henning says. Recent consolidation among TiO2 producers, with big producers, such as Huntsman and Cristal, acquiring larger shares of the market, also means that paint makers are keen to cut their reliance on TiO2 regardless of current prices. Ingredient efficiency overall is an important driver of paint reformulations and new product development. Paint makers are interested in cutting costs and boosting performance by optimizing their use of TiO2, resins and other components, industry executives say. "Anything you can do to optimize ingredients, [paint makers] will always be interested," Henning says. "A general trend in low-VOC is that the film isn't as hard and it plasticizes more, so you get more blocking," Henning says.
