LONDON (ICIS)--Helmut Linssen, a former finance minister in Germany’s North-Rhine Westphalia state, has been elected chief financial officer (CFO) of RAG-Stiftung – the majority owner of Germany-based specialty chemicals major Evonik, RAG said on Wednesday.
Linssen will take over on 1 December, succeeding Gunter Schlatter.
RAG’s 74.99% stake in Evonik is its main asset. Evonik is to be sold in an initial public offering (IPO), with the IPO proceeds to cover environmental and other costs related to the closure of German coal mines.
Private equity firm CVC holds the remaining 25.01% stake in Evonik.
