Owens Corning names Lonergan as a director

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Owens Corning named the CEO of Chiquita to its board Monday.

Edward Lonergan took the top spot at Chiquita Brands International Inc. last year after heading Diversey Inc. That company, a provider of cleaning, sanitation and hygiene products and services, was sold to Sealed Air Corp. in October 2011. Lonergan has also worked for Gillette Co. and Procter & Gamble.

The appointment is effective Sept. 18.

Owens Corning, based in Toledo, Ohio, makes insulation, composites and roofing materials. Earlier this month it completed its buyout of Thermafiber Inc., a maker of mineral wool commercial and industrial insulation products. Terms of that deal were not disclosed.
