“LANXESS has undergone an extensive change in recent years and is on a stable course for growth. We aim to bring the full potential of this Group to fruition in the years ahead. In my new role, I am looking forward to continuing down our chosen path and breaking new ground in conjunction with the Board of Management and all employees. Rolf Stomberg helped to write LANXESS’s story chapter by chapter, and it bears his own inimitable signature. We would like to thank Dr Stomberg for his outstanding service to the company by making him Honorary Chairman of the Supervisory Board,” said Wolfgruber.
The newly formed Supervisory Board has appointed Rolf Stomberg as its Honorary Chairman.
