Owens Corning says that Mike Thaman, its executive chairman, has decided to retire from the company from April 2020.

Brian Chambers, president and CEO, has been elected by the board to succeed Thaman.

‘It has been a privilege to be a part of Owens Corning for the past 27 years and to lead the board for nearly 18 years,’ said Thaman.

'On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank Mike for his strong leadership and unwavering commitment to the long-term success of Owens Corning,’ said John Williams, lead independent director of Owens Corning’s board of directors. ‘During his tenure, he provided the strategic direction to build a more stable, resilient company better able to perform through the business cycle.’
