LyondellBasell has appointed Michael McMurray executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO), effective 5 November. He replaces Thomas Aebischer, who will retire at the end of 2019.

McMurray joins LyondellBasell following a nearly 11-year career at Owens Corning, where he served as vice president/investor relations and treasurer; vice president/finance for the building materials group; and, for the past seven years, CFO. He previously spent 21 years with Royal Dutch Shell.

“Because he has worked both upstream and downstream of LyondellBasell, he has a unique perspective on market dynamics and how we can continue to create and deliver value,” says Bob Patel, CEO of LyondellBasell.
