The Chemours Company (Chemours), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Titanium Technologies, Thermal & Specialized Solutions, and Advanced Performance Materials, announced the appointment of Denise Dignam, current Interim Chief Executive Officer, to the positions of President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Dignam joined Chemours in 2015. She brings over 35 years of experience in the chemical industry where she has held senior roles in business and operations, sales and marketing, commercialization, and supply chain.

She had served as Interim Chief Executive Officer since February 2024, and prior to that held the positions of President, Titanium Technologies (TT) segment, and President, Advanced Performance Materials (APM) segment---two businesses that represent over 68% of Chemours’ net sales in 2023.

As President of Titanium Technologies, Dignam stood up the TT Transformation Plan, delivered significant operational savings in 2023, refocused the portfolio to deliver more customer value, and developed process improvements for better resource utilization across the manufacturing circuit. During her tenure on Advanced Performance Materials, she reshaped the portfolio to focus resources on secular growth opportunities in Clean Energy and Advanced Electronics. To further accelerate growth, she drove strategic partnerships and initiatives across the globe, and improved the overall cost structure of the business, laying the foundation for further cost optimization.

Dawn Farrell, Chair of the Board of Chemours, added, “Denise has the full support of the Board, and we are pleased to have an experienced and capable executive who is so highly regarded inside and outside Chemours for her track record leading the APM and TT business segments. Denise is a high-caliber leader who has the experience and capability to build value for shareholders while upholding our core values and serving our valued customers.”
