Sartomer Company, Exton, PA, has expanded its Asian market leadership by appointing Steve Edwards business and marketing development manager for the Asia-Pacific region.
Mr. Edwards assumes the business and marketing responsibilities of Frank Zeglin, who now works exclusively within Sartomer’s Asian functional additives area.
As a member of the Asia business team, Mr. Edwards is responsible for the coordination of business development and marketing activities for Sartomer’s photocure group, which serves the coatings, ink, adhesives and composites markets. In his new position, Mr. Edwards reports directly to David Long, senior vice president, finance and Asia.
“Steve’s experience and extensive knowledge of our photocure group and its products provide a double benefit for Sartomer,” said Mr. Long. “By taking over business and market development management duties for the Asian market, Steve enables Frank Zeglin to fully apply his knowledge and experience to the Asian functional additives area. Together, Steve and Frank will continue to develop Sartomer as a major force in the Asia-Pacific Region.”
Prior to joining Sartomer, Mr. Edwards worked for Cray Valley, Sartomer’s European sister company, as sales manager, where he was responsible for photocure and functional additives sales in the U.K., Ireland and South Africa. Previously, he also served as Cray Valley’s technical service and development manager.
