Peter Lindner has been appointed the new president of Clariant’s Asia Pacific operations. He takes over for Gary Fielding, who has left the company to pursue other opportunities. Previously, Lindner was president of the former special market region of Clariant, which was comprised of Eastern European and Middle East countries such as Turkey, India and Pakistan. The region has been integrated into the Europe and Asia Pacific regions as a result of Clariant’s regional restructuring that took effect at the start of 2009. Lindner has been with Clariant for 40 years including posts in Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, North America and Asia.
