Corning Inc. recently announced it has appointed Stephanie A. Burns, Ph.D., retired chairman and CEO of Dow Corning Corp., to Corning’s board of directors. She will also serve on the board’s corporate relations committee. Burns will hold office until Corning’s annual meeting of shareholders on April 26, at which time she will stand for election to a one-year term. Her appointment brings the number of Corning directors to 15.

Burns brings nearly three decades of global innovation and business leadership to the Corning board. Her career has spanned scientific research, issues management, science and technology leadership, and business management. She joined Dow Corning in 1983 as a researcher and specialist in organosilicon chemistry. In 1994, she became the company’s first director of women’s health. She relocated to Brussels, Belgium, in 1997, initially as director of Science and Technology for Europe, then as director for Dow Corning’s operations in the electronics and life sciences industries. In late 2000, she returned to the U.S. to become executive vice president of the company, responsible for global operations.
