Multi-billion dollar performance material business, Head of Product Stewardship EMEA

Sector: Science, Nutrition & Sustainability
Location: EMEA


The company, a multibillion-dollar investment owned performance material business, was going through a transformation process across the global product stewardship and REACH organisation. A new Vice President brought a compelling vision for the global group. The challenge was to hire a high performing Product Stewardship leader for EMEA who could bring the technical expertise alongside excellent people leadership and develop skills. The critical aspect of “fit” and the interpersonal skills to shape and develop a dispersed team were at the top of the agenda.


The technical requirements of this profile, with REACH deadlines approaching and the essential technical and regulatory knowledge required to be effective in this role, meant a focussed process of research, networking and sourcing across related businesses in the specialty chemicals market. Through this process the profiles were identified, engaged and attracted to the role. They were then extensively assessed to determine the suitability of their leadership and soft skills in order to be effective in the role and to fit the culture of the business.
