Pamela Butcher

Pilot Chemical Corp., a privately owned and independent global specialty chemical company, announces that Pamela Butcher will step down from her CEO role effective January 1, 2021. She will remain on the Pilot board of directors and serve as a special advisor to the chairman. Mike Clark, president and COO of the company will continue in those roles, serving as the company’s top executive and reporting to the board of directors. This is part of a planned transition and structuring of the Pilot organization, according to the company. 

Clark joined Pilot in early 2018 with more than 30 years in the industry and has been leading operations and, most recently, a successful strategy refresh. Over the next few months, Butcher and Clark will continue to work together to ensure a smooth transition.

“I appreciate not only the Board’s confidence in my ability to lead Pilot Chemical but also the high bar set by Pam,” says Clark. “I look forward to continuing to expand the company’s emphasis on high quality and innovation.”

As Clark assumes the top leadership position at the start of 2021, he will reportedly oversee nine locations and more than 400 employees.
