The supervisory board of Lenzing has appointed two new members to the company’s management board. Stephan Sielaff will serve as the new chief technology officer, effective March 1, 2020, succeeding Heiko Arnold. Christian Skilich will assume the position of member of the management board for pulp and wood raw materials, effective June 1, 2020.

At the same time, Lenzing’s highest management body led by chairman, Stefan Doboczky will be expanded to include a newly created management board position for ‘Pulp and Wood Raw Materials’, and will thus consist of five members instead of four.

Sielaff is a chemical engineer who gained experience in the chemical industry in the years 1993 to 2014, holding various management positions for Unilever and Symrise. Since 2014, he has worked for the Swiss specialty chemicals company, Archroma, an important supplier of the textile and paper industry, as a member of the board of directors and chief operating officer (COO).He has been responsible for forming the integrated operational structure and the strategic development of the company, according to Lenzing.

Skilich, who will assume management responsibility for the new pulp and wood raw materials division in Lenzing, boasts outstanding expertise in the field of paper and pulp technology. With a master of science in paper technology and engineering and economics, he first held various positions in the paper, packaging and glass industries. Since 2004, he has worked in a broad range of management areas on behalf of the internationally operating Mondi group. Skilich most recently served as chief operating officer on Mondi’s board of directors, overseeing projects in the US and Europe.

“In the coming years our focus will be on achieving the strategic target of strongly increasing our own supply of pulp in line with our corporate strategy sCore TEN. By creating this new division, the composition of the management board now also reflects this focus”, Peter Edelmann, chairman of the supervisory board of Lenzing said.
