Elects New Chairman of the Board

December 16, 2013

After more than 30 years, Jim Hanesworth has stepped down from his position as Chairman of the Board of Directors for Sea-Land Chemical Company, effective November 22, 2013. He will remain on the board as a director, a position that will allow him to continue to be a strong advocate for shareholders.

“Everyone associated with Sea-Land Chemical is appreciative of Jim’s efforts throughout his chairmanship,” said Joseph Clayton, president of Sea-Land Chemical Company. “He has been instrumental in putting essential corporate governances in place as well as leading the Executive and Compensation Committees.”

Board member Don Smith succeeds Mr. Hanesworth as chairman.

“Don brings many years of experience and a very inquisitive nature to the role,” said Clayton.  “His probing questions will assist management as they make decisions and will be a benefit as he leads the board.”
