"Financial struggles" said business executive Tom Strifler, "are not a foreign concept to me.
"I've been in the chemical industry for 30 years so financial struggles are basically what I've dealt with as the whole North American markets restructure. So I certainly (have) some concern but I don't think that's my biggest concern."
Strifler was named as the new executive director on Friday, and is set to start on Oct. 1. He was most recently based in Chicago, serving as the senior vice-president of manufacturing for Styrolution.
Strifler said over the next few years he hopes to grow the company.
"I really need to get the occupancy up, get it closer to filled status and get industries in here that are looking at growth, developing new technologies and investing in the community, so that's really going to be the focus."
Strifler previously lived in Sarnia for 17 years and said it still feels like home.
"I know most of the major players in the Chemical Valley. I know many people in the community, the college, so I think that's a big advantage," he said.
Originally from London, Strifler has had many senior roles in his career at chemical, energy and manufacturing companies.
"I think that's really what the facility needs, someone who's been through business, and understands what success looks like."
Strifler replaces Paul Paolatto who has been serving as the park's acting executive director since last April.
