Global industrial services and engineered products company Harsco Corp. has announced the appointment of Mark E. Kimmel as senior vice president and president of the company’s global infrastructure business group.
Kimmel succeeds Ivor Harrington, who is taking another position in the industry.
A. Verona Dorch will succeed Kimmel as vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. Both appointments are effective immediately.
Kimmel assumes the leadership of the Harsco infrastructure group as it completes the final stages of its restructuring and positions itself for a return to solid performance and increasing growth.
During the past two years, Harsco has restructured its infrastructure and metals and minerals businesses by reducing breakeven points, improving capital utilization and asset efficiency, focusing on sales efforts and upgrading the leadership team.
Kimmel joined Harsco in 2002 and has led the company’s worldwide legal and corporate governance disciplines while serving directly in the oversight of the infrastructure and metals and minerals business group restructurings.
Dorch joined Harsco in 2006 and has served the company’s legal department, most recently as deputy general counsel and assistant corporate secretary.
Interim Chairman and CEO Henry J. Knueppel announced the appointments.
“We are fortunate to have knowledgeable and proven leadership from within our organization ready to step forward for these roles,” Knueppel said. “This ensures a seamless continuity in both areas that will be critical to maintaining and ultimately accelerating our momentum.”
