AkzoNobel announced that the Supervisory Board and Board member Leif Darner have mutually agreed that he will step down from the Board of Management at the 2013 AGM in April. Conrad Keijzer, currently managing director of AkzoNobel Industrial Coatings, will succeed Leif Darner in his responsibilities for Performance Coatings. Keijzer will join the executive committee on January 1, 2013, ensuring a smooth hand-over.

Darner has had an extensive and successful career at AkzoNobel, joining the company in 1998 when Courtaulds became part of the company. He was appointed business unit manager of AkzoNobel Marine and Protective Coatings in 1999, a position he held until 2004, when he was appointed to the board of management as member responsible for Chemicals. In May 2008, he assumed responsibility for the Performance Coatings business area.

In addition, Werner Fuhrmann, currently executive committee member responsible for supply chain and sourcing, and presently also responsible for the Specialty Chemicals business area on an interim basis, will officially become the executive committee member responsible for Specialty Chemicals.

Fuhrmann started his career in the field of finance and he was appointed general manager of Chelates and Sulphur Products in 2000 before becoming managing director of Industrial Chemicals in 2005, a position he held until taking on his current role as an executive committee member in 2011.
