Matthias Zachert takes over as LANXESS’ Chairman of the Board of Management

Matthias Zachert has assumed his role as Chairman of the Board of Management of specialty chemicals company LANXESS AG as of April 1, 2014.

"I am looking forward to the new tasks back at my former workplace. In the coming weeks and months, we will work hard together to find solutions on how we will tackle the challenges lying ahead of us. With the support of all employees, I am sure we will return LANXESS to winning ways soon," said Zachert.

Along with the change to the company leadership, organizational and personnel changes are also taking place. With immediate effect, the group functions Investor Relations and Law & Intellectual Property, which were previously under the control of the Chief Financial Officer, are now reporting directly to the Chairman of the Board of Management. In addition, Markus Eckert became the head of the group function Corporate Development in March. Until further notice, he will continue to head the Leather business unit.

The company is currently represented at 52 production sites worldwide.
