Schütt is the new CEO of TFL
Wolfgang Schütt has joined TFL after working at Altana Ag, which is another major chemical manufacturer in Germany. More specifically, the manager was leading the Eckart Effect Pigments global division, a company’s branch operating in the automotive, industrial upholstery, printing, and cosmetic industries. Such division, whose overall turnover amounts to 360 million euros, currently hires 1,700 employees. While relying on a chemical background, Schütt graduated in Economics; then he took up his working career at Wacker Chemie, where he held several positions.
“I am extremely happy to join TFL and lead the company, which is an important player in the production of chemicals for the leather industry, in the next development stage – commented Schütt –. Right after carrying out the acquisition of Lanxess, a manufacturer of chemicals for leather, we shall strive hard to combine the strong points of both businesses. In so doing, we will successfully manage to become a leading company in the production of chemicals for the leather industry”. In the press release to announce the newly appointed German manager in the company, TFL top managers also thanked Amann “for his relevant contribution”. Amann is now going to become a member of TLF Supervisory Board.
