Evonik names new leadership for North America, including former head of Mobile plant

Bonnie Tully is now company’s chief operations officer

Evonik has named Guido Skudlarek president of the North America region. Bonnie Tully, who had led the region since 2020, is now chief operations officer for North America, focusing on the region’s production sites and business development. Tully once served as head of site service in Mobile.

In addition to the Mobile site, Evonik also has a location in Birmingham. These Alabama sites are two of the 30 production sites in North America for the company. At its Mobile site, the chemicals company is building a plant to produce methyl mercaptan, an intermediate in the production of methionine, an amino acid used in livestock farming.

Skudlarek recently served as head of operations excellence at the company’s Essen, Germany, headquarters, designing global transformation programs in production and supply chain management.

Tully, who studied mechanical engineering at Texas A&M, has more than 30 years of experience at Evonik and its predecessors. She will oversee the expanding operations in the region that recorded more than $4 billion in revenue in fiscal 2023, a quarter of the group’s total.

“I am an engineer at heart, and I can’t wait to again dive into the operational details of our great company,” Tully said.
