Celanese hires general counsel
Specialty materials company Celanese Corporation has recruited Lynne Puckett as senior vice president and general counsel, effective February 13, 2019.
Puckett will join Celanese after spending more than eight years at Colfax Corporation where she was senior vice president, general counsel and secretary. Before joining Colfax, she was a partner with law firm Hogan Lovells where she advised public and private companies on matters such as M&A.

‘Lynne’s extensive experience and her leadership approach make her a valuable addition to our Celanese team,’ says Mark Rohr, Celanese chair and CEO, in a statement. ‘Her balance of strategic insights coupled with execution excellence will complement our legal team nicely. Her orientation toward volunteerism echoes our own corporate value of making a positive impact on our communities and reinforces our culture.’
