ALPOLIC Names New COO- Bids Farewell to MCM Industry Veteran

CHESAPEAKE, VA – Mitsubishi Chemical America’s ALPOLIC Division, a leader in metal composite material (MCM) manufacturing, announced today the promotion of Paul Olson to Chief Operating Officer effective June 3, 2022. Olson will succeed retiring industry veteran, William “Bill” Yannetti, who has been with the company since 1989, before ALPOLIC manufacturing in the United States was launched.

“Bill has been a great mentor and leader for ALPOLIC. His knowledge, guidance, and vision have helped shape and cultivate an organization that is poised for continued success,” said Olson. “Bill is an inspiration and his impact and legacy with ALPOLIC and the entire architectural, engineering and construction industry will be long lasting.”

Olson, who joined the company in 2001, has worked closely with Yannetti in various roles for ALPOLIC, with the most recent being Operations Director.

It’s an exciting time to be with ALPOLIC, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.”
