Itaconix, a leading innovator in sustainable specialty polymers, announces the promotion of Laura Denner from Group Director, Finance and Operations to Chief Financial Officer (non-plc board position) with effect from 1 September 2019. Michael Norris will step down after serving as the Company’s Interim Chief Financial Officer (he was not a director of the Company) since 1 September 2018.
Ms. Denner has assumed increasing financial and operational responsibilities since joining Itaconix Corporation as Financial Controller in 2013. Her major accomplishments include a steady stream of projects to build a strong operating and accounting base for the Company’s growth needs. She is a Certified Public Accountant, previously worked as Audit Manager at Feeley & Driscoll (now part of BDO), and holds a Master of Science in Accounting from Boston College and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and International Studies from Bryant University.
John R. Shaw, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “I greatly appreciated Michael’s strong support as we worked together to restructure operations and move Itaconix into its new commercial phase. Laura worked closely with Michael over the last year and had lead responsibilities on major portions of this process. Her experience and leadership in developing our operations and finances have positioned us for on-going commercial success.”
