Amy E. Wilson has been elected corporate secretary of The Dow Chemical Company by the Board of Directors and has been named assistant general counsel effective February 1.
She replaces Charles J. Kalil as corporate secretary. Mr. Kahlil will continue as executive vice president and general counsel. Wilson continues to report to Kalil.
"During the past six years Amy has developed deep expertise and has consistently demonstrated outstanding leadership in the Office of the Corporate Secretary," said chairman and chief executive officer, Andrew N. Liveris. "The directors and I value and have complete confidence in her advice and guidance on critical corporate governance issues."
"Amy's election to the role of corporate secretary is in recognition of her proven track record, not only in developing and maintaining best corporate governance practices to ensure board effectiveness, but also for her role as a trusted advisor on a wide range of issues," said Kalil.
Wilson joined Dow's Legal Department in 2000 in Purchasing and Human Resources Law. In 2002, she transferred to the Corporate and Financial Law section and in 2006 she moved to Dow's Europe legal department in Horgen, Switzerland. Upon her return from Europe in 2008, she joined the Office of the Corporate Secretary and was elected assistant secretary by the Board of Directors. Wilson was named director of the Office of the Corporate Secretary in 2013.
Prior to joining Dow, Wilson was an attorney at the firm of Currie Kendall, PC. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Michigan State University and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School.
