HEM’s New President Chuck Herak

We’re excited to announce Chuck Herak has been selected as the new President of Huber Engineered Materials (HEM) succeeding the retiring Andy Trott.  Chuck joined Huber in 2009 as Vice President (VP) & General Manager (GM) of HEM’s Silica business.

“We will greatly miss Andy and his terrific leadership impact on Huber, as he’s been a tremendous asset,” says Mike Marberry, Huber’s CEO.  “After learning of Andy’s plans to retire, he and I worked closely on developing a succession plan for HEM and shared a common ambition of filling positions that would open as a result of his retirement from within, drawing from our successful leadership development programs across the Company.  Under Chuck’s leadership, Huber’s global Silica business has been a very strong performer and we’re looking forward to have him now lead the HEM business.” 

David Riley has been named VP & GM of HEM’s Silica business.  Previously, David held the position of VP & GM of HEM’s Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) business.  He held this role for four years and previously worked in the Silica business as Director of Global Marketing.

Matt O’Brien has been selected as VP & GM of the GCC business.  For the last nine years, Matt has been a key member of Huber Engineered Woods LLC, serving as Chief Financial Officer and most recently as Chief Commercial Officer with responsibility for Sales, Marketing and Supply Chain.

“We’re extremely pleased we were able to draw upon the outstanding leadership talent we currently have in the Huber organization to position us for continued growth in the future,” Marberry concluded.
