Schlenk Metallic Pigments GmbH has appointed a new President: Dr Uwe Dreyer will assume the position as of April 1, 2022, making him Division Manager of the Effect Pigments and Metallic Powders division at the medium-sized chemical group SCHLENK.
Dreyer, who comes from northern Germany and holds a doctorate in chemistry, previously worked in the management of various companies in the printing inks & coatings industry. His professional stations led via laboratory and production management to technical management. Most recently, he worked as the sole responsible managing director of two companies of a US group in Baden-Württemberg and Saarland.
With this personnel change and the associated strengthening in the Operations area, SCHLENK intends to further improve its focus on customers and product quality.
Dr Dreyer succeeds the previous President and Division Manager of Schlenk Metallic Pigments GmbH, Dr Alois Seidl, who will terminate both activities at his own request when his contract expires on March 31, 2022, and will also step down from the Executive Board of Carl Schlenk AG.
However, Dr Seidl will remain closely associated with the company. After a cooling-off period, he will move to the Supervisory Board of the Group at the end of this year.
The Executive Board of Carl Schlenk AG will thus consist of only one person in the future, with CEO Joachim von Schlenk.
Joachim von Schlenk: "We stand for long-term partnerships and innovative as well as qualitative products. We will continue to expand this position in the market together with Dr Uwe Dreyer. We would like to expressly thank Dr Alois Seidl for his many years of service and his successful contributions to the development of our company. We wish him much success and all the best, both professionally and personally, and look forward to a new way of working with him."
