President of its newly consolidated Fiberweb Americas

May 23, 2007

Fiberweb has named Dave Rousse to serve as president of its newly consolidated Fiberweb Americas unit. Mr. Rousse joined Fiberweb in late 2005 as president of Hygiene/Medical Americas. Derek Anderson, formerly president, Fiberweb Industrial Americas, has resigned from Fiberweb, effective immediately.

According to the company’s CEO Daniel Dayan, the sale of Fiberweb’s hygiene wipes business to Ahlstrom Corporation significantly changes the scale and complexity of its U.S.-based business. “We remain focused on growing in industrial specialties and investing in attractive segments of the hygiene nonwovens business and this change will enable us to optimize use of our considerable technical and commercial resources, both in North America and around the globe,” Mr. Dayan said.
