BG Products names Darin Greseth president; Galen Myers remains as chairman and CEO

WICHITA — BG Products is getting a new president, but the company's current president isn't going anywhere.

Galen Myers has been president of the company, which manufactures automotive chemicals, since 1993 and chairman and CEO since 2000.

Myers will remain chairman and CEO, and Michigan businessman Darin Greseth will become the new president as of April.

The 68-year-old Myers says he once "was younger, and I could do it all."

Now, though, "It's time to bring some young, energetic people in."

Greseth owns Premaco Michigan, which distributes BG Products. He will remain an owner in the company in addition to being president at BG Products.

In only 13 years in business, Premaco Michigan has become No. 7 in sales for all BG distributors.

"So we've grown very rapidly," Greseth says.
