AkzoNobel, the world’s largest paint and coatings company, has made worldwide leadership changes to many of its geographic and business sectors, including protective and marine coatings.

The moves were made “in line with the company's growth ambition and the recent announcement to drive global performance improvement measures,” the company says without elaboration.

Marine and Protective Coatings will see new leadership at AkzoNobel.

Rob Molenaar will become the new Managing Director of Marine & Protective Coatings. Molenaar had been director of Powder Coatings.

Bob Taylor, currently the Managing Director of M&PC, will become Managing Director of Decorative Paints North America.

AB Ghosh, Director of the Automotive and Aerospace Coatings Americas business, will succeed Molenaar as Managing Director of Powder Coatings.

Country Leadership Changes

In new country leadership:

• Lin Liangqi has been appointed President of AkzoNobel China, in addition to his role as Managing Director of Decorative Paints China and North Asia; and
 
• Jaap de Jong, previously a principal at McKinsey & Co., has been appointed Regional Director Latin America and President of AkzoNobel Brazil.

Amit Jain remains Group Managing Director for India, in addition to his role as Managing Director of Decorative Paints India and South Asia.

“These appointments strengthen the company's senior leadership in key markets,” said Marjan Oudeman, AkzoNobel's Executive Committee member responsible for Organizational Development and HR. “The leadership changes will capture growth and business opportunities, and will help drive a common agenda across AkzoNobel."
