Michael Roney has joined Azelis’ board of directors to aid the company with his knowledge in specialty chemicals. Roney was formerly the CEO of Bunzl, the international distribution and outsourcing group. The company has operations spanning 29 countries and four continents.
Roney retired from Bunzl earlier this year, having served as CEO since 2005, to accept the position at Azelis. His 10 years of leadership experience and more than 100 acquisitions will provide support for Azelis as it sets the strategic direction for the business.
“This is a significant development for Azelis; we will benefit from Michael’s expertise and proven track record in distribution,” said Dr. Hans-Joachim Müller, Azelis’ CEO. “As we look to grow and develop Azelis, we will draw upon his extensive experience of expanding into new markets.”
