February 3, 2014
It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Don Evans as the new President and CEO of Lewis-Goetz, effective March 1, 2014.
Don comes to Lewis-Goetz and the ERIKS family from Koppers, a global supplier of carbon compounds and treated wood products. Don has spent his career at Koppers in management roles within Sales, Marketing and Business Development. From 2001 to 2011, Don worked as the Vice President of Global Marketing, Sales and Development. Most recently, he has been the Vice President of all European operations.
Don will begin his role at Lewis-Goetz beginning March 1 and we are in the process of designing a rigorous introduction program for him. This will include visits to many of our locations to familiarize Don with the fundamentals of our businesses as it exists today, but more importantly, the great opportunities we have identified as we embark on another period of dramatic growth. Don’s background in Marketing and Business Development will serve him and the company very well as we execute our growth plans in the coming years.
As Don transitions into his new Lewis-Goetz role he will also be in the process of moving his family back to the United States from Europe.
Please join me in welcoming Don to the Lewis-Goetz organization and for helping to make his transition into his role as smooth as possible
