Former AkzoNobel CEO Joins Stahl’s Board

Specialty coatings provider Stahl has appointed former AkzoNobel CEO Thierry Vanlancker as a non-executive director to its board. The company reports that Vanlancker will provide valuable oversight, advice, and strategic guidance to Stahl’s leadership, supporting the company’s position as a leader in specialty coatings and treatments for flexible substrates. In 2022, Stahl also entered the adhesive and bonding segment when it announced the launch of the RelcaBond® brand.     

From 2017 to 2022 Vanlancker served as CEO and chairman of the Management Board of AkzoNobel NV. Prior to his tenure at Akzo he held several senior positions in Europe and in United States at Dupont. 

Vanlancker also serves as chairman of the board at Sika and as non-executive board director at Aliaxis and Etex. He brings over 30 years of experience in the specialty coatings and chemicals industries and holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Ghent University.  

Maarten Heijbroek, Stahl CEO, commented, “We look forward to working with Thierry and harness his extensive experience in the coatings industry to support Stahl’s own transformation into a specialty coatings company and realize Stahl’s ambitious ESG targets.”

Vanlancker said, “I’m delighted to be joining Stahl at this exciting point in its history. I have gotten to know Stahl as a high-quality company with a clear strategy and a true sustainability leader in its field.”
