Ossenkopf is leaving the company at his own request to pursue new challenges. However,
he will continue to be available for certain projects of the company group. Ossenkopf about
: “My heart still beats for the industry and the company, and I am pleased that many
innovations and solutions of our company, such as the BaseCoat/ClearCoat system, have
become firmly established during my time. I wish my successor an equally open and
innovative customer base.”

He will be succeeded by René Lang, also an accomplished chemical engineer and manager
who has already made a name for himself in responsible positions in the coatings industry,
