There will be a personnel change on the Managing Board of the Lenzing Group, a leading supplier of wood-based specialty fibers. Robert van de Kerkhof, Chief Commercial Officer Fiber and member of the Managing Board since 2014, informed the Supervisory Board that he would not be available for a further extension of his contract, which runs until December 31, 2023. In his role as Chief Commercial Officer he has contributed significantly to the successful development of the Lenzing Group.
The Managing Board of Lenzing AG, Lenzing/Austria, will thus be reduced from 4 to 3 members. Chief Executive Officer Stephan Sielaff will essentially take over the commercial agenda in the fiber division. Van de Kerkhof will continue to drive the sustainability area, including the CO2 roadmap, as Chief Sustainability Officer until the end of his current term of office.
