Hanau. Matthias Hau has been appointed as Evonik's Regional President for the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Region, effective July 1.
This goes hand in hand with the merger of the former Eastern Europe and Middle East & Africa Regions and the countries of Western Europe which will be consolidated into the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Region.
The Evonik EMEA Region will consist of five regional clusters: Central Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa, Russia, Turkey, and Western Europe (without Germany).
Matthias Hau explains: “We are bundling our competencies and bringing together our expertise combined with the proximity to our markets and customers. Thus, we can tap even more into the potential of the EMEA Region for the Evonik Group.
Matthias Hau joined Evonik in 1982. Since then, he worked in different management functions and locations across the world including England, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, and Germany. Prior to this appointment, he was responsible for the Eastern Europe Region and the functional unit Sites Western Europe.
