CHT Group, a producer of specialty chemicals for textiles, recently appointed Eva Baumann to the position of CEO. Together with Klaus Müller, who acts as chief financial officer (CFO), she forms the management of the internationally active company.

Until 2020, Baumann had worked for many years in a leading global company in the chemical industry. She has been part of the CHT Group since January 2020 and, as group vice president, has headed the Business Field General Industries at the group level. As CEO, Baumann is now responsible for marketing, sales, corporate strategy, human resources, and sustainability.

Chairman Johan de Ruiter stated, “With Baumann, we have appointed a CEO for the CHT Group who has known the company for several years. Her many years of experience in managing an international business field and her diverse activities in the chemical industry make her the ideal candidate. In these challenging times, we are confident that Baumann as CEO will ensure and further expand the long-term success of the CHT Group.”

Baumann is said to have ambitious plans for the future of the CHT Group.

“We are facing challenging but promising times of change. As a foundation-owned company, we have a strong backing. Nevertheless, we bear an immense responsibility for the continued existence of the company and for our employees all over the world,” said Baumann. “As a player in the chemical industry, we are also particularly committed to preserving our planet. Having been part of the CHT Group for many years, I know the character of the company and the people who make it up very well.”

Baumann continued, “Together with my management team, I will continue to expand the CHT Group as a successful and profitable specialty chemicals group. We focus on what we have been particularly good at for over 70 years: turning innovative ideas into specialty applications.”
