Arch Chemicals’ Transformation

Biocides on Path to Meet 2013 Targets

3:07 PM MST | February 14, 2011 | NANCY SEEWALD

As Michael Campbell nears the end of his 13-year tenure as Arch Chemicals’ chairman and CEO, his goals are to complete a portfolio cleanup begun more than 10 years ago, and to achieve major margin improvement. Campbell has been at the helm of Arch since it was spun off from Olin in 1999, and has focused the company on biocides, which now account for about 90% of sales.
