Dow Names Leaders for Curtainwall, Asian Construction Markets

Dow Corning Corp. has named Ricky Neoh as the new global market leader for the company's construction industry curtainwall market, and Tim Efthimiady has been named Asian construction industry leader for the company, as well. The positions become effective this year. Neoh will be responsible for leading the company's construction industry curtainwall marketing team, which designs, fabricates and installs external wall systems on multi-story buildings. Prior to the appointment, Neoh served as the company's Asian construction industry leader and has served previously as Dow's Asia market leader for the curtainwall segment in Shanghai. "The curtainwall market is growing globally, especially in strategic markets like China," said Ron Fillmore, global executive director for Dow Corning's construction industry. "Ricky's expertise and contacts in the curtainwall industry along with his knowledge of Asia will ensure our continued success in this growing market."

Efthimiady will step into the Asian construction industry leader position recently vacated by Neoh. Before doing so he served as Asia marketing and sales development manager for Dow and has nearly 20 years experience in commercial sales and marketing in Asia.
