In 2018, Alvenia was appointed Senior Director of Corporate Communications before becoming the SVP of Communications and Chief Brand Officer (CBO) in 2020.
As CBO, Alvenia is building Chemours’ reputation by sharing the company’s vision of using chemistry to create a better world and driving sustainable innovation to achieve business performance and growth.

She is the executive sponsor of the Chemours Black Employee Network and serves as the executive co-lead of the Chemours Diversity and Inclusion Council. In 2022, Savoy Magazine named Alvenia to its list of the “Most Influential Black Executives in Corporate America.”
Before joining Chemours, Alvenia held several senior communications leadership roles with DuPont, Newell Rubbermaid, and Kodak.
Alvenia grew up the youngest of three in Richmond, VA where she learned about plant sites and manufacturing from her father, a 30+ year machine operator in the tobacco industry. Alvenia would go on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of Virginia and earn her Master of Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
