Mr. Aggarwal joined Huntsman back in 2005 and had served in both Huntsman Advanced Materials and Textile Effects divisions.

Mr. Garrett commented: “I want to thank Rohit for his leadership and contributions to our Textile Effects Division, particularly in the past months since we acquired Huntsman Textile Effects. Moreover, Rohit has been a true transformation force over the past years, helping to drive further the sustainability agenda in the apparel and textile industry.”
