John Wilson, President of U.S. Chemicals / Cadence Chemical

August 1, 2017

Effective July 1, 2017, John Wilson has assumed the role of President of Maroon Group’s combined U.S. Chemicals / Cadence Chemical business, which is currently operating from a unified office in Darien, CT. Carol Piccaro, the former President of U.S. Chemicals, has moved into a Senior Executive role where she will be working closely with John and the entire team to transition the leadership of the business. As always, the focus will remain on exceeding the expectations of the combined customer base while working closely with and adding value for our partner suppliers.

“Carol has been the major driver of U.S. Chemicals for many years and will support John to ensure a seamless transition. We're indebted for her commitment and dedication over the last 14 months as part of Maroon Group. She is a true leader, a genuine entrepreneur, and a real team player”, comments Mark E. Reichard, Maroon Group’s President and CEO. “When we acquired the U.S. Chemicals business in April 2016, coordinating an effective transition of leadership was a priority for Carol and Maroon Group. This is the next phase of this plan.”
