LONDON (ICIS)--BASF CEO Kurt Bock and Bayer CEO Marijn Dekkers have been elected to the executive board of Germany’s chemical producers trade group VCI, the group said on Friday.

Bock and Dekkers recently became CEOs of their firms, succeeding Jurgen Hambrecht at BASF, and Werner Wenning at Bayer, respectively. Hambrecht and Wenning also served as VCI vice presidents.
