Chief Executive Officer Wolfgang Buechele will take over Maeki-Kala’s position on a temporary basis until a successor is found, spokeswoman Leena Lie said. A recruitment process is under way, extending to both external and internal candidates.
Maeki-Kala is ending a seven-year spell at Kemira that’s seen the Helsinki-based company transform from a diversified chemical supplier to a niche supplier of treatments for industrial waste water and municipal drinking supplies. He officially steps down on May 5.
A successor will be hired “as soon as possible,” Lie said by phone.
