ChemQuest ExpertsThe ChemQuest Group has welcomed two new global leaders to its team. Sharon Feng, Ph.D., has been named a vice-president, while Prem Patel has joined the firm as a director.

Sharon Feng began her career with Bayer Corp., rising through the ranks and developing expertise in organic pigments, polymer resins, and emerging coating technologies such as waterborne, high-solids, powder, and UV coatings before being named vice-president of business development for the coatings, adhesives, and specialties segment of Bayer MaterialScience for the Asia-Pacific region. Subsequently, she served in three vice-president roles, leading EHS, supply chain, and innovation functions with both Lanxess Corp. and Bayer MaterialScience North America.
