Clariant, a globally leading specialty chemicals company, has announced that Judith van Vliet, a designer at its ColorWorks design and technology centre in Merate, Italy, has been appointed president of the Color Marketing Group (CMG). CMG is a not-for-profit, international association of colour design professionals from a wide range of industries.

Before being elected to CMG’s presidency in December 2017, van Vliet had served as the Group’s vice president for communications and public relations for the previous three years. Her term as president begins in January 2018.

The election of van Vliet begins a new era for the 56-year-old organisation, which is based in Alexandria, Virginia, US. While the group has always had international members, van Vliet is the first non-American designer to hold CMG’s presidency. Among the principal goals for the Netherlands-born van Vliet, in addition to her native Dutch, is to lead the expansion of CMG’s membership in European and Asia-Pacific countries.

CMG’s outgoing president, Susan Hayes Hoover of Fawn Ridge Studio in US said, “With the appointment of our first European president, Judith van Vliet, the Color Marketing Group is entering an exciting new chapter as a truly international organisation. Not only does Judith bring visibility to our association through her position with Clariant ColorWorks, but she is also the first CMG president to represent the energy and insight of the vitally important Millennial demographic. With her passion for colour and dedication to excellence, I am confident that she will continue the strong leadership that CMG requires to move into the future.” (GK)
