Evonik appoints new managers to its segments boards

December 04/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Johann-Caspar Gammelin, currently Chairman of the Board of Management of Evonik Performance Materials GmbH, will take over as Chairman of the Board of Management of Evonik Nutrition and Care GmbH from Dr. Reiner Beste, effective April 1, 2019, as per the company's press release.

On this date Dr. Beste, as new Regional President, will assume responsibility for bringing together the two regions Asia Pacific North and Asia Pacific South. "The attractive growth markets in Asia are of special importance to Evonik", says Christian Kullmann, Chairman of the Executive Board of Evonik. "With Reiner Beste, our aim is to strengthen the growth of our numerous businesses there."

The successor to Mr. Gammelin as Chairman of the Board of Management of Evonik Performance Materials GmbH will be Dr. Joachim Dahm.

Together with Mr. Gammelin and Dr. Dahm, in future, Dr. Claus Rettig, as Chairman of Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH, and Gregor Hetzke, as Chairman of Evonik Technology and Infrastructure GmbH, will participate in the meetings of the Executive Board.

Dr. Rainer Fretzen will join the Board of Management of Evonik Technology and Infrastructure, taking over the position of Chairman from Gregor Hetzke on September 1, 2019. From that time on, Dr. Fretzen will therefore participate in Executive Board meetings.

As MRC reported earlier, in April 2017,  half a year after the announcement of the 2030 strategy, MOL Group  reached an important milestone in its industrial transformational journey. The license agreements signed with Evonik and thyssenkrupp, will enable MOL to produce propylene oxide, a key component for the production of polyether polyols. MOL intends to become a significant producer of polyether polyols, high-value intermediates for products applied in the automotive, packaging and furniture industries.

Evonik, the creative industrial group from Germany, is one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals. Its activities focus on the key megatrends health, nutrition, resource efficiency and globalization. Evonik benefits specifically from its innovative prowess and integrated technology platforms. Evonik is active in over 100 countries around the world.
