AkzoNobel Poux-GuillaumeAkzoNobel has announced that Gregoire Poux-Guillaume will become the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as of November 1, 2022. He will succeed Thierry Vanlancker, who has been CEO and member of the Board of Management since 2017, and whose term of office is coming to an end.

Poux-Guillaume, a French national, is an international business leader with 25 years of experience. His career history includes CEO of Sulzer, CEO of GE Grid Solutions (previously Alstom Grid) and Senior Managing Director of CVC Capital Partners.

“Gregoire Poux-Guillaume is an experienced business leader with a track record of delivering above market growth and building strong teams,” said Nils Smedegaard Andersen, Chair of AkzoNobel’s Supervisory Board, regarding the appointment. “We’re happy and confident to have found the best match for AkzoNobel to continue our position as a frontrunner in our industry. His experience will provide a valuable perspective to help us with future growth and financial performance. I look forward to working with him.”

Poux-Guillaume said, “I’m honoured to have been selected by AkzoNobel’s Supervisory Board to lead the company through its next stage of development. AkzoNobel is a leader in innovative and sustainable products and solutions; a truly global company with a proud heritage. I look forward to meeting my new colleagues and together building on the progress that has been achieved over the last few years.”

“We’re grateful for Thierry’s leadership, under which AkzoNobel successfully split off the Specialty Chemicals business and became a focused and competitive paints and coatings company, with strong profitability and significant returns to shareholders,” added Smedegaard Andersen.

The appointment of Gregoire Poux-Guillaume to AkzoNobel’s Board of Management is subject to shareholder approval and, as such, will be on the agenda of an Extraordinary General Meeting to be scheduled in September this year.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
