Silicones maker Gelest has named Doug Wulffleff v.p./mergers and acquisitions. Wullfleff will be responsible for identifying business opportunities and developing M&A strategies for Gelest.

He was most recent v.p./strategy and corporate development at VWR International, a lab chemicals maker that was acquired by Avantor last year. He had also served in M&A-related roles for a variety of other companies.

In November, Gelest named Ken Gayer, a former Honeywell executive, as its new CEO. Gayer replaced Gelest founder Barry Arkles.
