GERT Wendroth has been appointed as the new president of Nynas AB, with effect from 1 March 2014. He will replace Staffan Lennström who is retiring at the end of April.
Mr Wendroth (pictured) has a strong background in the oil industry, his most recent position being chief executive officer of H&R AG, a German listed company operating two base oil refineries in Germany and a number of blending and filling plants for specialty products around the world.
Before that he held various management positions in the Royal Dutch Shell Group, with a strong focus on business-to-business sales and marketing.

‘It really is a unique company that offers a lot of growth prospects. In particular, the acquisition of the Harburg refinery is a significant investment in the future of Nynas, so it’s very exciting to join the company at this precise moment.’
