KahlWax Management Board Expanded


Dr. Matthias Seemann becomes additional executive director

Trittau, Germany - 07.08.2017

Effective 01.07.2017, Dr. Matthias Seemann was appointed an additional executive director. He is in charge of Sales, Marketing, and Research & Development of the Trittau-based family business. The company thus now has a two-member Management Board. Managing partner Ulrich Huntenburg continues to oversee Finance and Production. Dr. Seemann’s main focus is the company’s strategic direction, the optimization of its innovation processes, and its competitiveness.

Seemann is a 51-year-old chemist who previously worked for Capol GmbH (Freudenberg Group), where he crucially contributed to the company’s success in his role as CEO during the past six years. Prior to that he was technical product manager and technical director of Reckitt Benckiser / Propack and head of application technology at Jungbunzlauer. He ideally complements the management of KahlWax and will accompany it on its successful course in an executive position.
