Belgium: Management Structure Solvay Makes Changes to its Executive Committee
Post the announcement, Solvay's Executive Committee will consist of five members: Ilham Kadri (Chair and CEO), Karim Hajjar (CFO), Vincent De Cuyper, Augusto Di Donfrancesco and Hua Du.
Brussels/Belgium – As part of the managerial transition launched at the end of 2018 under the leadership of Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, the Board of Directors of Solvay recently announced the departure of Pascal Juéry and Cécile Tandeau de Marsac, from the Executive Committee.
Cécile Tandeau de Marsac has decided to leave Solvay to focus on personal projects, having led the Group's Human Resources for the past seven years. Cécile will remain in this position until the end of June 2019. Cécile has played an important role in the key stages of Solvay's transformation, including the integration of the Solvay and Rhodia teams, the teams from Cytec and other companies which have joined the Group.
Pascal Juéry, member of Solvay's Executive Committee since 2014, has decided to leave the group for personal reasons. He will continue to manage the planned sale of the Polyamides activities, reporting to Solvay CEO Ilham Kadri, until September 2019, when he will leave the group. Ilham Kadri will take over his other responsibilities ad interim.
Fresh impetus within Solvay's Executive Committee
"As part of my review of Solvay, I've had the opportunity to exchange with many employees, representatives of the European Works Council, customers and investors," said Ilham Kadri, CEO of Solvay. "Four aspects were systematically brought forward: the need for a shared vision that gives a purpose to the Group's activities, the desire to strengthen collaboration within teams, the importance of the customer - who must inspire all of Solvay's initiatives - and, finally, a more systematic consideration of the returns on investment."
Following the announcement, Solvay's Executive Committee consists of five members: Ilham Kadri (Chair and CEO), Karim Hajjar (CFO), Vincent De Cuyper, Augusto Di Donfrancesco and Hua Du.
