MULHEIM AN DER RUHR, GERMANY: Brenntag has named Steven Holland as the company’s next CEO effective June 22, 2011, succeeding Stephen Clark. Holland is currently Brenntag Chief Operating Officer.  Holland will assume his new role following the company’s general shareholders’ meeting. Steven Holland joined Brenntag in 2006 following the acquisition of Albion Chemical Distribution Group where he had been CEO.

In addition, William Fidler, President and CEO of Brenntag’s North American business, will join the management board with immediate effect. In his new role, he will be responsible for Brenntag’s North and Latin American business.

Both, the CEO transition and the appointment of William Fidler as a member of the management board are part of the systematic and long-term succession planning that has been a key success factor for Brenntag. Stephen Clark will step down as CEO of Brenntag AG and be proposed for election to the company’s supervisory board.

Steven Holland has had an impressive career over the last thirty years and has a successful track record in chemical distribution. Holland was appointed a board member of Brenntag and CEO of Brenntag’s European business in 2007 before assuming additional responsibilities at group level as COO in 2009. “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to succeed Stephen Clark in this exciting and rewarding role. Brenntag has a strong foundation of ambitious and experienced management, passionate about the business and its future growth potential,” said Holland.
