Since January 1, 2010 Dr. Stefan Beckmann has been head of the Care Chemicals and Formulators Europe unit at BASF. He succeeds Dr. Friedrich Seitz, who will be taking charge of BASF's Competence Center Chemicals Research & Engineering.

Beckmann was born in 1963 in Ostercappeln (Lower Saxony), Germany. He started his BASF career in 1992, after obtaining a degree in chemistry and subsequently gaining a doctorate in Organic Chemistry at the Westfaelische Wilhelms-Universitaet Muenster, Germany, and spending a postdoc period at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. Initially he worked in what was then BASF's Colorants Laboratory. From 1997 to 1999 Beckmann was deputy plant manager in the Dispersions and Pigments division. After that, he was delegated to BASF Petronas Chemicals in Malaysia for four years as general manager. Another delegation followed in July 2003, this time to BASF YPC Chemicals in China, where he was responsible for Marketing and Sales. In January 2006 Beckmann finally returned to Ludwigshafen and from then on was responsible for part of global procurement of raw materials.

BASF's Care Chemicals & Formulators business unit develops, produces and markets a comprehensive range of products for cosmetics, detergents & cleaners, and industrial and chemical applications. The portfolio includes personal care ingredients, surfactants, polymers, complexing agents, biocides, waxes and wax emulsions, as well as metal surface treatment products. Care Chemicals & Formulators is part of BASF's Care Chemicals division.
