Prior to joining Dow in 2010, Lange worked as a consultant at Deloitte Consulting in Chicago. He holds an MBA with honors from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor’s degree in finance and accounting from Indiana University.

Gregorio’s tenure at Dow began in 1984, and in the years that followed, he held a variety of key leadership roles across the company.

“Mauro’s strategic vision, understanding of our customers, and commitment to excellence have been instrumental in driving our success. His remarkable journey at Dow leaves an indelible mark on our company and the industries we serve,” said Fitterling.

Gregorio’s leadership was pivotal during the integration of Dow Corning’s silicones business into Dow.

Gregorio’s impact extends beyond business. He has been a strong advocate for inclusion and diversity, serving as the executive sponsor of Dow’s Hispanic & Latin Network employee resource group. His commitment to community engagement is evident through his service on the Board of Directors for United Way of Midland County and MyMichigan Health Foundation.

Fitterling adds, “As Mauro embarks on this new chapter, I extend my deepest gratitude for his unwavering dedication, vision, and leadership. His legacy will continue to inspire us as we forge ahead, guided by the principles he championed.”
