Mr. Lawson succeeds Michael Griem, who will end a two-year assignment as president of Sun Chemical’s North American Inks business unit. Mr. Griem will return to Sun Chemical’s European Inks business unit in January, where he will take on various projects.
“Aligning our Publication Ink Units and North American Commercial Group makes sound business sense as they face similar issues and challenges. It will enable us to better leverage resources as we strive to improve our profitability and operational effectiveness in these challenging markets,” said David Hill, CEO and president, Sun Chemical. “Michael’s contributions resulted in significant progress over the past two years, and I am confident that Greg will continue that trend of continuous improvement.”
Mr. Lawson joined Sun Chemical in 2002 and shortly thereafter was appointed president, Sun Chemical Latin America, where he engineered a tremendous turnaround for that business. He was named president of US Ink last March.
“Sharing the best practices from these customer-focused divisions will enhance the value that we deliver,” Mr. Lawson said.
