Diversey appoints new ceo

Diversey has announced the appointment of a new chief executive officer (ceo) to succeed Dr Ilham Kadri, who leaves the business at the end of this year.

He is Mark Burgess, formerly ceo of Signode Industrial Group and Graham Packaging Company. He has held a number of operational and financial leadership roles in several other businesses.

"Mark emerged as the best person to lead Diversey into the future because of his experience successfully transforming complicated multinational businesses by building strong organisations, seizing attractive growth opportunities, and effectively integrating acquisitions," said Ken Hanau, chairman of the board of directors.

Burgess commented: "I'm honored to join Diversey, a company with a rich heritage, a legacy of innovation, and an enduring focus on customer service.

"Diversey is well-positioned for the future as we continue to invest in innovation to drive growth while delivering increased value for our customers."

Carlos Sagasta, chief financial officer, and Gaetano Redaelli, global president for the professional division - who have been serving on an interim basis as joint deputy ceos - will return to their positions and report to Burgess.
