Coatings manufacturer Hempel (Lyngby, Denmark) announced Wednesday (Oct. 9) the appointment of Martin Wiese as the new Head of Protective and Industrial Businesses. Both segments account for roughly half of Hempel’s turnover.

Wiese began his career with the company in 1996, joining the research and development team in Denmark. Moving through a number of different roles, Weise was later promoted to Group Vice President for Research and Development for Hempel in 2005.

He holds an executive MBA from the Scandinavian International Management Institute and a Master of Science in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Copenhagen.

“It is a huge responsibility and I have every confidence in Martin’s skills and capabilities,” said Michael Hansen, Chief Commercial Officer at Hempel.

“We operate within an industry where our customers are continually growing bigger and becoming more global. It is vital we retain and strengthen our global presence ensuring we are able to operate and compete at the very highest level. I am confident that Martin will fit perfectly into his new role, and I am very pleased that he has accepted the challenge.”
