IMCD expands Executive Committee with two new appointments

IMCD N.V., a global leader in the distribution and formulation of specialty chemicals and ingredients based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has announced the expansion of its Executive Committee with the addition of Fenna van Zanten and Andreas Igerl, effective January 1, 2024. These appointments aim to bolster the company’s growth strategy by integrating diverse expertise and perspectives into its leadership team.

Fenna van Zanten, appointed as IMCD Group director of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), brings a wealth of experience in legal and corporate strategy. A Dutch national, van Zanten holds a Master of Law degree from Erasmus University, Rotterdam. Since joining IMCD in 2020 as a legal counsel, she has played a pivotal role in refining the company’s M&A processes and overseeing global acquisitions. Her promotion to director of M&A in 2022 marked a significant step in standardising and strengthening IMCD’s acquisition strategy.

Andreas Igerl, taking on the role of president of IMCD Asia-Pacific (APAC), has a proven track record in business management and development. A German national, Igerl graduated with a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Applied Science for Economy and Management, Munich, Germany. His journey with IMCD began in 2019, initially leading the Advanced Materials Business Unit in Germany, followed by his role as managing director of IMCD China. In 2022, Igerl moved to Singapore to oversee the APAC region, demonstrating his capability in managing and expanding business operations in diverse markets.

Both van Zanten and Igerl will report directly to Valerie Diele-Braun, CEO of IMCD Group. Their appointments are a strategic move to reinforce IMCD’s position as a global leader in the specialty chemicals sector. The expansion of the Executive Committee signifies IMCD’s commitment to driving growth through experienced leadership and a focus on key business areas like M&A and regional market development.

The inclusion of van Zanten and Igerl in the Executive Committee is expected to bring fresh insights and strategies, furthering IMCD’s mission to be a foremost global distributor and formulator in the specialty chemicals and ingredients industry.
