COLOGNE, GERMANY: Lanxess AG said that it has made changes to the supervisory board. The board’s current chairman, Dr Rolf Stomberg (77) will resign from his office as a member and chairman of the supervisory board after the end of the annual stockholders’ meeting on 15 May 2018.

Stomberg has recommended Dr Matthias Wolfgruber (64) to succeed him for the position of chairman of the supervisory board. Wolfgruber has a doctorate in chemistry, served as chairman of the board of management of Altana AG, and has belonged to the supervisory body as a representative for stockholders since 2015.

Pamela Knapp (60) is expected to be promoted as a new member to the supervisory board for Lanxess. Most recently she served as the chief financial officer (CFO) for GfK SE, the listed market research company based in Nuremberg, Germany. Prior to that, she was active in various management roles at the Siemens Group.

“When I was re-elected to the supervisory board in 2015, I announced support for the realignment of Lanxess, but that I would not hold office the entire term. Now the company is doing well and is back on track for growth – it is the right time to leave the chair of the supervisory board to someone new,” said Stomberg.
