Azelis is making changes to its organization to support future growth.

The board of directors for Azelis has announced that a change with the company’s strategic organization is needed for future success. With support from investors and the successful integration of Azelis Americas, Azelis has a global footprint that is prepared for the next phase of growth and expansion.

The board welcomed Thijs Bakker as its new chief financial officer, joining the company in September after Martin Hollenhorst retires from the position. With 15 years of experience working for AkzoNobel in various financial roles, Bakker brings knowledge of the financial information from the chemical industry into the business.
