Wolfgruber has been a member of the Supervisory Body as a stockholder representative since 2015.
“LANXESS has undergone an extensive change in recent years and is on a stable course for growth. We aim to bring the full potential of this Group to fruition in the years ahead. In my new role, I am looking forward to continuing down our chosen path and breaking new ground in conjunction with the Board of Management and all employees,” said Wolfgruber.
