Changes at the top for Diversey

Dr Ilham Kadri is to resign from her position as Diversey's chief executive officer with effect from December 31.

She has been appointed ceo, chairman of the executive committee and member of the board of directors at Solvay - an advanced materials and specialty chemicals company.

With immediate effect Carlos Sagasta, Diversey's chief financial officer and Gaetano Redaelli, global president for the professional division, will become joint deputy chief executive officers (ceo's). In addition to their current roles, they will also be responsible for running the company on a day-to-day basis, until a successor is identified.

"Since becoming a standalone company in September 2017, I'm proud that Diversey has emerged as a strong, profitable, sustainable company. Our efforts to transform and digitise the hygiene and cleaning market have resulted in double-digit bottom line growth since 2013 and a record double-digit topline growth this year," said Kadri.

"I am honoured to have had the opportunity to lead this impressive team who has worked hard to help our company evolve and reach our potential. I'm confident they will continue to drive solid growth and value for our customers and partners."
