Over the past two years, he has profoundly changed and repositioned Brenntag SE.

The transformation he initiated and further developed together with the Board of Management team and the entire organization will leverage the company's great potential and further expand Brenntag's global market leadership in all dimensions.”

Christian Kohlpaintner: “I would like to thank the Supervisory Board for their trust. Brenntag will continue to focus on sustainable organic earnings growth. We are making very good progress with Project Brenntag and have already achieved more than half of the expected effects. The next step will be to now grow faster and stronger in our markets. We have the best foundation for this with our great employees and trusting customer and supplier relationships.”

Christian Kohlpaintner, born in 1963, looks back on an international management career spanning almost 30 years. He was initially appointed Chairman of the Brenntag Board of Management in September 2019, effective January 1, 2020.
