David Eckert, CEO

David Eckert was named CEO of Exavera in November 2004. He was specifically asked to take on this role by Dr. Anthony Marlon, who became Exavera chairman in the fourth quarter of 2004 after investing in the company a year earlier. Between these two individuals, there is more than 70 years experience in start-ups, fund raising and operations for multi-billion dollar publicly traded corporations.

During his career, Mr. Eckert has led more than 35 individual profit centers of between $30 million in revenue to over $600 million in revenue to compete in start-up and mature business areas. He has helped over 50 functional managers self-develop into business unit leaders.

Prior to Exavera, Mr. Eckert served as president of Rhodia, a $7B global specialty chemicals company with 25,000 employees based in Paris, France.

Before his time as president, Mr. Eckert served in a number of other executive positions within Rhodia and its previous parent company, Rhône-Poulenc. As deputy president, he doubled the size of his Consumer Specialties Division to $2.4B and 8000 employees by managing the acquisition of A&W, and divested various business units to optimize operations. He was also active in the team responsible for a successful secondary stock offer. As executive vice president, Mr. Eckert established a $1.1B operational unit with the creation of Rhodia, and participated in all IPO activities to begin the Rhodia spin-off from Rhône-Poulenc. As president of the North American region, he was responsible for a profit center of $1.5B with 13 reporting business units, and led the re-engineering of all North American work practices. Under his leadership, productivity and profits increased by 34% and 78%, respectively.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Eckert served in a variety of leadership roles at FMC Corporation, a $4B global chemicals and machinery company headquartered in Chicago. In his last assignment, he was corporate vice president and group manager of Agricultural Chemicals.

Mr. Eckert holds a MBA from Harvard University with second year honors (1975), and a BSEE with high distinction from Pennsylvania State University (1973). He also has served on the board of the American Chemistry Council and was awarded a Commendation Medal from the US Army for his service in Vietnam.
