Thierry Vanlancker, CEO & Chairman at AkzoNobel

Thierry Vanlancker, CEO & Chairman at AkzoNobel: ‘For about a year, I worked hand-in-hand with Peter. He was the strategy leader for the business I was leading. Peter was invaluable for his insight, energy, and experience. The ideal sparring partner to think through the complex issues of a multi-business chemical portfolio. And all of that linked with a very strong no-nonsense, pragmatic knowledge of what works out there in the markets as well as what will work in the own organization and its capabilities. Last but not least, Peter is a fun person to work with who oozes positive energy and can-do attitude.’
