ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axiall Corporation (NYSE: AXLL) announced today that Chief Financial Officer Greg Thompson has been named “CFO of the Year” in the large public company category by the Atlanta Business Chronicle newspaper.
“This is an honor and a high point in my career,” Thompson said. “While this is a personal award, it also is recognition of the impressive strides the entire team has made at Axiall Corporation since 2008 and the financial strength that we now enjoy.”
“When Greg joined the company – then Georgia Gulf – we were struggling financially,” said Paul Carrico, president and CEO of Axiall Corporation. “In 2009, Greg led a team effort to complete a major financial restructuring that helped to position our company for growth. Our turnaround was demonstrated last year, when we successfully concluded a merger with PPG’s chemicals business and created an integrated leader in the chemicals and building products industries.”
