Matthias Zachert has assumed his role as Chairman of the Board of Management of specialty chemicals company LANXESS AG as of April 1, 2014. 
 
"I am looking forward to the new tasks back at my former workplace. In the coming weeks and months, we will work hard together to find solutions on how we will tackle the challenges lying ahead of us. With the support of all employees, I am sure we will return LANXESS to winning ways soon," said Zachert.
 
Along with the change to the company leadership, organizational and personnel changes are also taking place. With immediate effect, the group functions Investor Relations and Law & Intellectual Property, which were previously under the control of the Chief Financial Officer, are now reporting directly to the Chairman of the Board of Management. 
 
In addition, Markus Eckert became the head of the group function Corporate Development in March. Until further notice, he will continue to head the Leather business unit.
 
LANXESS is a leading specialty chemicals company with sales of EUR 8.3 billion in 2013 and roughly 17,300 employees in 31 countries. The company is currently represented at 52 production sites worldwide. 
 
The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacturing and marketing of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals. LANXESS is a member of the leading sustainability indices Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World and DJSI Europe) and FTSE4Good as well as CDP’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).
