H.C. Starck Group recently announced four new members to its executive board. John van Put will represent the Advanced Metals and Ceramic Powders (AMCP) business unit, and Dmitry Shashkov will act for the Fabricated Products (FPR) business unit. Together with CEO Andreas Meier and CFO Ludger Heuberg, they will form the company’s new management team.

“During the past years, H.C. Starck has become a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance technology metal and ceramic powders and fabricated products with a strong international footprint,” said Engelbert Heimes, chairman of the supervisory board. “In addition, the group has especially focused on technology metal recycling as a dynamically growing business field. The extension of the executive board is thus a logical step that will support H.C. Starck in fully capitalizing on market trends and in realizing additional growth opportunities. Both new board members not only bring with profound expertise in their working areas, but also know H.C. Starck very well through their previous positions.”

“We are very proud that the supervisory board has identified and promoted two competent new board members within the talent pool of H.C. Starck,” said Andreas Meier, CEO. “John van Put and Dmitry Shashkov are two very experienced colleagues with a strong international background and entrepreneurial spirit.”

van Put has held several leadership positions with the company since 2008, and currently leads the AMCP business unit. Shaskov joined H.C. Starck in 2010 and heads the FPR business unit.

Axel Westerhaus, who had been in the executive board since 2007, has retired.
