#innovationIOWA Dupont appoints Edward Breen permanent CEO

The News York Times:  DuPont appointed interim Chief Executive Edward Breen, who is best known for overseeing the turnaround and breakup of Tyco International Plc, as its permanent CEO and chairman. Breen took over as DuPont’s interim CEO on Oct. 16 after veteran Ellen Kullman suddenly stepped down. Unlike Kullman, who was with DuPont for nearly three decades and was CEO since 2009, Breen has been with the company for less than a year. Breen was Tyco’s CEO from 2002 to 2012, cleaning up after previous CEO Dennis Kozlowski, who was later convicted and imprisoned for financial crimes.
