NEW YORK (AP) — DuPont's board of directors named Edward D. Breen as chairman and CEO after a month of holding those positions in an interim capacity.

Breen was named as an interim leader last month after the sudden retirement of 59-year-old Ellen Kullman.

Breen had been on the company's board since February and has held several executive positions elsewhere, including at Motorola and General Instrument Corp.

DuPont shares slipped a penny to $66.10 in premarket trading two hours before the market open on Monday.
