Meier Named CEO and Chairman of Executive Board at H.C. Starck

The H.C. Starck Group will complete the team of its executive board as of February 1, 2010, when Andreas Meier, Ph.D., becomes chairman of the board of H.C. Starck GmbH and CEO of the international H.C. Starck Group. Among other duties, he will be responsible for the strategic direction and further development of the Group. Meier joins the two current executive board members, Uwe Salzer, Ph.D., and Axel Westerhaus, Ph.D.

After studying chemical engineering at the University of Graz, Meier obtained his doctorate at the Montan University of Leoben in Austria. In 1985, he started his professional career with RHI AG, where he held various positions in research, production and marketing. Meier became a board member of RHI AG in 1999 and was appointed chairman of the board in 2007.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Meier as chairman of the executive board of H.C. Starck,” said Engelbert Heimes, Ph.D., chairman of the supervisory board of H.C. Starck. “With his successful professional career, Dr. Meier has the broad industrial competence and valuable experience that will serve him well in his position at H.C. Starck. We wish him and his two colleagues, Dr. Salzer and Dr. Westerhaus, much success for their mutual tasks.”

“I am looking forward to my new responsibilities at H.C. Starck,” said Meier. “The company has a very wide and technologically sophisticated product portfolio, a strong international market position and is therefore well-positioned for profitable growth in the long term.”

The company’s website is located at www.hcstarck.com.
